Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- A suicide attack killed 36 people and injured 42 Monday at a recruitment center for the Afghan national army, a government official said.
The attack happened in northern Afghanistan's Kunduz province, said a spokesman for the provincial governor, Mohibullah Saidi. The death toll is likely to rise, he said, as many of the injuries were serious.
Most of the dead and injured were planning to join the army, he said, but the attack also killed four children.
