Kabul Truck-Bomb Toll Tops 150

The death toll from a truck-bomb explosion in Kabul last week has reached more than 150 people, all of whom were Afghans, President Ashraf Ghani said on Tuesday, making it the deadliest attack in the Afghan capital since the ouster of the Taliban in 2001. The blast occurred when a sewage truck packed with what Ghani called “military-grade” explosives detonated at the entrance of a fortified area of that city that includes foreign embassies and government buildings, Reuters reported. “We were not the only targets, the entire diplomatic community was the target of this attack,” Ghani told foreign diplomats gathered for a conference in Kabul. No group has claimed the attack, which sparked violent anti-government protests.
