Killed, More Than 150 Wounded In Taliban Car Bombing In Kabul

'This is a massacre' Bomb hidden in AMBULANCE explodes outside hospital killing 17

Afghanistan Health Ministry confirmed the incident and the deaths.

According to early reports, a auto bomb was detonated close to the gate of the old Ministry of Interior building in the city, reported Afghan's TOLO News.

The four-month-old was packed out with a bomb ahead of a planned strike on Kunduz in Afghanistan.

Twenty minutes before Saturday's blast an AFP reporter saw police checking ambulances several hundred metres from the scene of the explosion.

Turkey on Saturday condemned the terror attack at the entrance of a government compound in the Afghan capital Kabul.

Rahimi said the bomber driving the ambulance pretended to be going to the nearby Jamhuriat Hospital.

The attack comes just as week after militants stormed the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul and killed 22 guests.

A statement issued by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said, "India strongly condemns barbaric terrorist attacks in Kabul targeting innocent civilians".

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the blast.
