Pakistan condemns heinous terrorist attack in Kabul

KABUL: At least 63 people were killed and 182 wounded in a blast at a Kabul wedding late Saturday.

The explosion came just as the US and the Taliban are widely expected to sign off on a deal that would see American troops begin to depart Afghanistan in return for various security assurances from the insurgents.

“#Kabul #Afghanistan explosion in a hotel during a wedding party, about 20 patients arrived up to now at our hospital #masscasualty,” the Italian-run Emergency hospital of Kabul said on Twitter.

Interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said the blast occurred in a west Kabul wedding hall around 10:40pm (1810 GMT).

He shared on Facebook photos showing several apparent bodies inside a dining area.
