Kabul bomb: Diplomatic zone attack kills dozens

A powerful vehicle bomb has hit the diplomatic area of the Afghan capital, Kabul, killing at least 80 people and injuring 350.

It struck near Zanbaq Square in the heavily fortified zone, with civilians said to be the main casualties.

The morning rush-hour blast created a massive crater and blew out windows and doors hundreds of metres away.

The bomb went off at about 08:25 local time (03:55 GMT) during rush hour at the diplomatic quarter.
