A Muslim terrorist with a bomb in an ambulance in the Afghan capital Kabul has killed at least 95 people and wounded at least 158 others.
The terror attack claimed by the Taliban occurred near foreign embassies and government buildings, a week after a deadly assault on the Intercontinental Hotel.
‘The suicide bomber used an ambulance to pass through a Police checkpoint,’ interior ministry deputy spokesman Nasrat Rahimi told AFP.
‘He passed through the first checkpoint saying he was taking a patient to Jamuriate hospital and at the second checkpoint he was recognised and blew his explosive-laden ambulance.
‘It is a massacre,’ said Dejan Panic coordinator in Afghanistan for the Italian aid group Emergency, which runs a nearby trauma hospital.
