Kabul, June 2 (RHC)-- In Afghanistan, the death toll in Wednesday’s massive truck bomb attack in Kabul has risen to 90, with over 400 people wounded, as Afghans mourn one of the worst single attacks since the U.S. invaded in 2001.
No group has claimed responsibility for the bombing, which struck a busy intersection in the heart of the Afghan capital during the morning rush, flattening buildings, damaging embassies and shattering windows at the presidential palace. Many survivors blamed the government for failing to provide security.
On Thursday, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani issued a decree ordering the execution of 11 prisoners from the Taliban and the Haqqani network, which officials blamed for the attack.
Meanwhile, in Baghdad, Iraq, ISIS has claimed responsibility for a car bomb that killed at least 16 people and wounded 75 others when it ripped through an ice cream parlor on Tuesday. A second explosion in Baghdad Tuesday targeted Iraq’s pension office, killing 11 people and wounding 41 others.
