ISIS Claims Suicide Attack On Kabul Protest By Hazara Minority, Dozens Killed


(Huffpost)

KABUL (Reuters) - Islamic State claimed responsibility for a suicide attack in the Afghan capital Kabul on Saturday that killed at least 80 people and wounded more than 200 when it tore through a demonstration by members of the mainly Shia Hazara minority.

Graphic television footage from the site of the attack showed many dead bodies lying on the bloodied road, close to where thousands of Hazara had been demonstrating over the route of a planned multimillion dollar power line.

“Two fighters from Islamic State detonated explosive belts at a gathering of Shi’ites in the city of Kabul in Afghanistan,” said a brief statement on the group’s Amaq news agency.

Afghanistan’s interior ministry said at least 80 people were killed and 231 others wounded in the attack.
