Taliban kill 95 and injured 158 with ambulance bomb in Afghan capital, officials say



A suicide bombing has killed at least 95 people and injured 158 others in the centre of Afghanistan's capital, Kabul, officials say.

 
Attackers drove an ambulance laden with explosives past a police checkpoint in a secure zone, home to government offices and foreign embassies.


The target is believed to have been an interior ministry building, but many people were hit while walking by.


The Taliban have said they carried out the attack, the deadliest for months.
