Fresh! Taliban Kill 63 With Ambulance Bomb In Kabul
A suicide bombing has killed at least 63 people and injured 151 others in the centre of Afghanistan's capital, Kabul, officials say.
Attackers drove an ambulance laden with explosives past a police checkpoint into a street that was only open to government workers.
The Taliban have said they carried out the attack, the deadliest for months.
Witnesses say the area – home to foreign embassies and the city's police headquarters – was crowded with people when the bomb exploded on Saturday at about 12:15 local time (08:45 GMT). Plumes of smoke were seen from around the city.
Officials said the death toll would probably continue to rise as casualties were brought to hospitals for medical attention.
