UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday strongly condemned the attack on an educational center in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, earlier in the day.

The UN chief extended his condolences to the families of the victims and wished a speedy recovery to those injured.

Guterres underscored that education is "a fundamental right and an essential driver for sustainable peace and development," and reiterated his call on all parties to ensure the protection of civilians.

He called on the de facto authorities in Afghanistan to protect the rights of all Afghans, regardless of ethnicity or gender, to access education safely and securely.

At least 19 people were killed and 27 others were wounded in a suicide explosion that rocked an education center in a neighbourhood of western Kabul on Friday.
