MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Ghani declared Sunday the day for the nation to mourn the victims of the deadly suicide bombing that shook the capital city of Kabul.
“Our enemies, attacking civil liberties, think they can divide us. But they will be defeated," Ghani said Saturday during a televised address to the nation.
A blast shook the Afghan capital earlier in the day during a peaceful protest over the planned 500kW power line project. According to the Afghan Interior Ministry, 80 people died and 231 were injured. Among those killed and injured in the attack are members of the country's defense and security forces who were ensuring safety at the rally when the explosion occurred.
