    ISIS-claimed suicide bomb blast kills 80 people in Kabul, Afghanistan

    The United Nations (UN) Security Council has condemned the suicide bombing by ISIS in Kabul, Afghanistan, which killed at least 80 people and injured more than 230. Two explosions occurred on Saturday during a demonstration by a group of peaceful protestors in Dehmazang Square.

    A suicide bomber detonated his device among the demonstrators while police reportedly shot and killed a second attacker, according to a statement posted on the UN website. UN Secretary-General special representative for Afghanistan Tadamichi Yamamoto said: “This attack is particularly heinous because it targeted civilians as they exercised their rights to freedom of assembly and freedom of expression. “It is an attempt to spread terror amongst civilians and stifle the freedoms that Afghans have sacrificed so much to obtain.”
