63 dead, 182 wounded in Kabul suicide bombing

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN (NBC)-- The death toll from a suicide bombing at a wedding in Afghanistan's capital is at least 63, including women and children.

A government spokesman said another 182 civilians were wounded in the explosion last night.

It was Kabul's deadliest attack this year.

Workers began a cleanup operation at the western Kabul site this morning, moving chairs, belongings and shoes belonging to the bombing's victims.

The Taliban have condemned the attack and denied any involvement in the blast that carried the hallmarks of an assault by the local ISIS affiliate.

Last night's explosion came a few days after the end of the Muslim holiday.
