Suicide bombing at wedding in Kabul kills at least 63

The death toll from a late-night suicide bombing at a crowded wedding party in Afghanistan's capital rose to at least 63 on Sunday, including women and children, officials said.

Another 182 civilians were wounded in the Saturday night explosion, the deadliest attack in Kabul this year, government spokesman Feroz Bashari said.

Interior Ministry spokesman Nusrat Rahimi confirmed the casualty toll as families began to bury the dead.

Some helped to dig graves with their bare hands.

Kabul residents were outraged as there appears to be no end to violence even as the United States and the Taliban say they are nearing a deal to end their 18-year conflict, America's longest war.

The Taliban condemned the attack as "forbidden and unjustifiable" and denied any involvement, leading many to suspect the Islamic State group's local affiliate in Afghanistan in the attack.

Both the Taliban and IS have carried large-scale attacks in the Afghan capital in the past.
