Abdullah Abdullah escapes deadly attack


Gunmen have killed more than 30 people during a ceremony attended by top Afghan politicians in Kabul. The country’s chief executive, Abdullah Abdullah, escaped unharmed, but dozens of others were wounded. The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility. It targeted the same event, which commemorates the death of an Afghan Shia leader, in 2019. The attack was the first major one in Kabul since a deal was signed between the US and the Taliban last Saturday. That agreement aims to bring peace to Afghanistan. However, IS were not involved in negotiations.(BBC)…[+]
