Reporter: Shaker Sangi
A bomb blast at a wedding ceremony in western Kabul killed 63 people and injured 182 others, including children, women, and women.
Ashraf Ghani, the president of the country, condemned the brutal attack by the terrorist group and declared today a black day. He said the government-building team stopped their campaigns today because of civilian deaths and National Mourning Day.
Dr. Abdullah Abdullah, the country’s chief executive, also said the attack on defenseless and innocent civilians is a war crime and an inhumane act. He added: “The savage terrorists have once again proved that they do not believe in any religion or religion and have no qualms other than killing and terrorizing.”
Mr. Hanif Atmar (presidential candidate), the office of the National Security Council, John Bess (US Ambassador to Kabul), and other government officials also condemned the terrorist act and called it an inhumane act.
Meanwhile, at 10:40 last night, a bomb planted at a wedding party in western Kabul killed and wounded at least 200 people.
