Saudi Arabia condemns Kabul attack


Saudi Arabia condemned on Wednesday the suicide bombing in the Afghan capital of Kabul that killed at least 55 people and wounded dozens.

Saudi Arabia rejects these cowardly acts, an official source at the Saudi Foreign Ministry said, stressing the kingdom's solidarity and standing alongside Afghanistan against terrorism and extremism.

The Afghan Health Ministry announced Tuesday that 55 people were killed by an explosion near an event hall on the airport road in Kabul during a Moulid celebration.

Najib Danesh, spokesman for the Afghan Interior Ministry, said more than 80 others were injured in the attack.

Danesh said a suicide bomber detonated explosives inside the event hall, targeting a Moulid celebration in the attendance of senior Muslim scholars in Kabul.
