“The bomb exploded in the diplomatic quarter near the German Embassy and the Afghan presidential palace. The streets were packed with commuters, women shopping and children going to school and the blast appears likely to result in a high civilian death toll.”
The attack took place in a diplomatic area of Kabul, leaving 360 people injured, including at least 11 Americans. The Taliban has denied having any involvement in the mass murder.
Just a few days into the month-long Muslim holiday of Ramadan, multiple terrorist attacks have rocked the Middle East, though you may not have heard about them unless Americans were involved.
The bomb was delivered via a large water truck, according to CNN, and was detonated near a major television station. BBC employee Mohammed Nazir was killed in the blast.
