“A massive bomb hidden in a sewage tanker has exploded in the centre of Afghanistan's capital during the morning rush hour, killing at least 80 people, wounding hundreds and damaging embassy buildings.
“The explosion — one of the deadliest in Kabul — came at the start of the holy month of Ramadan, shattering windows and blowing doors off their hinges in houses hundreds of metres away.” - ABC News (5/31/17)
I’m sorry for the Afghan people’s horrific suffering and loss…
