Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], Jan. 28 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump has condemned the suicide car bombing in Kabul that claimed 95 lives and injured 163 others.

"The Taliban's cruelty will not prevail," Trump said in a statement, issued hours after the attack on Saturday.

The Taliban has claimed the responsibility of the incident, wherein an attacker driving an explosive-laden ambulance denoted the vehicle in a busy area, which is close to Kabul's Chicken Street.

"The United States is committed to a secure Afghanistan that is free from terrorists who would target Americans, our allies, and anyone who does not share their wicked ideology. Now, all countries should take decisive action against the Taliban and the terrorist infrastructure that

supports them," the statement further read.

This bombing is the latest in a string of deadly attacks across Afghanistan in the past week.

Earlier on Wednesday, an office of 'Save The Children' organisation in Jalalabad city of Nangarhar province came under attack. (ANI)
