Slaughter in Afghanistan

Isis claims responsibility for Kabul fatal bomb attack on Hazara protesters

ISIS, like the Taliban and like al-Qaeda, is Sunni.

As is often noted, but maybe not often enough, the principal victims of Muslim violence are other Muslims.

Two suicide bombers is all it took.

At least 80 dead and more than 230 wounded after attack on demonstration by minority group, which makes up 9% of population.

At least 80 people have been killed and hundreds injured after two suicide bombers struck a peaceful protest in Kabul by a Shia minority group. 

Responsibility for the attack, which appears to have targeted a demonstration by the Hazara minority, was claimed by Islamic State via the group’s news agency, Amaq. 

If true, it would mark the first attack by Isis in Kabul, and its largest ever in Afghanistan.

According to a spokesman for the Afghan interior ministry, 231 people were wounded, though this figure could rise.
