A suicide bomb attack was carried out near the German embassy in Kabul during rush hour on Wednesday morning.
80 people were killed.
In addition to the fatalities, 300 were injured according to the health minister. A towering plume of smoke rose over the Afghan capital as emergency vehicles sped towards it.
Soldiers in fatigues stood with guns drawn plus the sound of screams, blaring sirens and traffic piercing through the morning sky.
Bystanders lifted wounded people from the back of cars as others hovered nearby as if in a daze, blood streaming down their faces.
This is sad.
