A massive explosion rocked the center of Kabul on Saturday, killing at least 95 and injuring 158 others in the capital of Afghanistan.
An ambulance packed full of explosives was driven by attackers past a police checkpoint in a secure area that hosts official government offices and foreign embassies, in an attempt to target an old interior ministry building.
The assailants detonated in their vehicle by the building, but many walking past were struck by the blast, in an attack claimed by the Taliban.
This comes a week after the Taliban attacked the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul, killing 22 in an assault largely targeting foreigners.
