Afghanistan suicide bomb at wedding killed 63 wounded 182
A suicide bomber killed 63 people and wounded 182 in an attack on a packed wedding reception in the Afghan capital on Saturday night.
Women and children were among the casualties, interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said on Sunday.
Violence does not seem to end despite hopes for a deal on a U.S. troop withdrawal.
The attack came as the Taliban and the United States are trying to negotiate an agreement on the withdrawal of U.S. forces in exchange for a Taliban commitment on security and peace talks with Afghanistan’s U.S.-backed government.
The Taliban denied responsibility and condemned the blast at a west Kabul wedding hall, in a minority Shi’ite neighborhood, packed with people celebrating a marriage.
