The Taliban, through spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed responsibility for the attack late Thursday.

She also said Washington had not seen "decisive and sustained changes from Pakistan", which Afghan and USA officials have accused of supporting the Taliban.

Shah Shir Azara, a security marshal at the site, said 13 people had been killed.

The most lethal suicide bombing against Hazaras came in 2016, killing more than 80 people.

The death toll has risen to nine, Waheed Majroh, spokesman for the Health Ministry said.

In other developments, the Taliban launched a deadly assault overnight on an army outpost in a remote region of northern Takhar province, killing six soldiers and wounding five, Defense Ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri said.

Alice Wells, a USA principal deputy assistant secretary of state in charge of South and Central Asian affairs, said Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's offer of talks with the Taliban without any preconditions was the "most specific and forward-leaning proposal" for peace since the US -led invasion in 2001.

The Taliban also ambushed members of the local police who were sent to assist the soldiers, killing 10 policemen and wounding nine, provincial police spokesman Khali Aseir said. He claimed the Taliban had inflicted a far higher number of casualties but the insurgents often exaggerate their claims.

The report couldn't be independently confirmed because of the remoteness of the area.
