Announcement

I know most people are asleep right now and will be waking up to this, but there’s been a massive suicide car bombing in Kabul, Afghanistan. So far, the latest reports are that at least 64 people are dead and over 300 are injured.


I’m so sorry to be the bearer of bad news for this stuff, but I feel as though it’s important to know about it.

Everyone please stay safe.

Kabul: at least 80 killed by massive car bomb in diplomatic quarter
Blast near the German embassy leaves more than 300 injured, Afghan interior ministry says
By Sune Engel Rasmussen

The huge blast of a bomb hidden in a sewage tanker occurred close to the German embassy in the Wazir Akbar Khan area of the capital on Wednesday morning, sending clouds of black smoke spiralling into the sky near the presidential palace and foreign embassies. Meanwhile, the vast majority of casualties are expected to be civilians.

It took place at the peak of Kabul’s rush-hour when the streets were packed with commuters and just days into the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

May I ask what's going on in Afghanistan? I feel bad for not knowing

Another massive car bomb exploded in a town square.  It killed 80 and injured hundreds more.  They’re expecting the death count to rise.

Any attack like this is awful but they’re seeing it over and over everyday.  It just breaks my heart. 

So many innocent people are dying.
