Kabul residents are Fearul and have security concerns today, one day after a deadly blast killed at least 90 people, wounded another 463 and damaged embassy buildings in the capital’s unofficial “Green Zone”.
A powerful bomb hidden in a sewage tanker exploded in the morning rush hour at a busy intersection yesterday. The victims of the explosion appeared mainly to have been afghan civilians on their way to work or school.
The blast was unusually strong, shattering windows and blowing doors off their hinges in shops and houses hundreds of metres away. Today, the clean up operation was underway, with piles of swept up broken glass lining the sidewalks.
No group has claimed responsibility by Wednesday evening. The attack drew international condemnation, ranging from Pakistan to the United States, the European Union and Pope Francis.
