Kabul (Afghanistan), Jan 28 (ANI): A bomb hidden in an ambulance killed at least 95 people and wounded about 140 in Afghanistan's capital Kabul on Saturday. It blew up near foreign embassies and government buildings in the capital. The blast occurred at a police checkpoint. The streets were busy when the explosion happened as Saturday is a working day in Afghanistan. A representative of Italian aid group 'Emergency' called the attack a "massacre". Eyewitness of the blast said he was sitting in his shop when he heard the blast, which shattered all the windows in the building. The Taliban have claimed responsibility. The deadly blast comes only a week after the group attacked Kabul's Intercontinental Hotel killing more than 20 people.
