A huge car bomb explosion killed at least 80 people and wounded more than 350 others in Kabul’s diplomatic zone, Afghanistan’s Ministry of Public Health says. The attack struck a busy neighborhood in the Afghan capital just before 8:30 a.m., during Kabul’s morning commute.

The bomb was detonated near Zanbaq Square outside the Green Zone, according to the NATO-led Resolute Support mission, which adds that Afghan security forces kept the car bomb from entering the Green Zone, “but the explosion caused civilian casualties in the vicinity.”
