A powerful vehicle bomb has hit the diplomatic area of the Afghan capital, Kabul, killing at least 80 people and injuring 350.
It struck near Zanbaq Square in the heavily fortified zone, with civilians said to be the main casualties.
The morning rush-hour blast created a massive crater and blew out windows and doors hundreds of metres away.
The Taliban have denied carrying out the attack. There has been no word so far from so-called Islamic State.
Let us all demonstrate from our religion or philosophy that every human life is sacred, to curb terrorism. For Islam: Al Quran 5:32/33. pic.twitter.com/02D9UyAdQO
