03 Juin, 2017, 10:02 | Author: Claudine Rigal

An Afghan health official says the rush-hour suicide auto bombing in Kabul has killed at least nine people and wounded as many as 90.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani condemned Wednesday's blast as an "inhuman and cowardly attack" against innocent civilians in the holy Islamic month of Ramadan. In kind, it was only the latest in a grim series that has killed thousands of civilians over the years.

A powerful vehicle bomb has hit the diplomatic area of the Afghan capital, Kabul, killing at least 80 people and injuring 350.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres expressed his "abhorrence" at the strike which he said underlined the urgency of the fight against terrorism and violent extremism.

Scores of people waited in hospitals on Thursday to learn the status of loved ones wounded in an attack that killed mostly civilians, including women and children, but also Afghan security guards.

Najib Danish, deputy spokesman for the Interior Ministry, said at least 50 people were killed or wounded in the suicide auto bombing Wednesday.

"I want to tell those regional countries and those who are harbouring and training terrorists for their political targets that the Afghan nation and the global community is aware about their activities", Ghani said.

At least 90 people were killed and hundreds wounded when a massive truck bomb ripped through Kabul's diplomatic quarter during rush hour, in the deadliest attack in the Afghan capital since 2001.

A day after the terror attack in Kabul, that killed almost at least 80 people and injured many others, Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani issued a decree ordering the execution of 11 Haqqani Network and Taliban prisoners, ANI reported.

German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said the bombing was in the "immediate vicinity" of its embassy.

The Taliban - now in the midst of their annual "spring offensive" - denied they were involved.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. But the National Directorate for Security, Afghanistan's main intelligence agency, has blamed the Haqqani network, an affiliate group directly integrated into the Taliban, and said it had acted with the help of Pakistan's intelligence service.

Germany canceled a plane that was to take deportees to Kabul following Wednesday's attack.

The war in Afghanistan, the longest ever involving USA troops, has shown no sign of letting up. They mainly serve in an advisory capacity - a far cry from the USA presence of more than 100,000 six years ago.
