Nobody immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing, with the Taliban denying any involvement. Government officials suspected ISIL-KP to be involved, due to an increase in activity by the group in the months prior to the bombing.
The United Nations condemned the attack and expressed their deepest condolences to the victims, urging Afghan officials "to combat by all means, threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts".
