President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani lashed out at Taliban and has called for an extraordinary security meeting after last night’s deadly wedding hall bombing in Kabul city.

Ghani said in a Twitter post “Taliban cannot absolve themselves of blame, for they provide platform for terrorists. Today is the day of mourning, hence #StateBuilder have cancelled today’s gathering at the Loya Jirga tent.”

Furthermore, Ghani said “For those who are wounded, I pray for your speedy recovery. I have ordered the relevant authorities to urgently assist in managing the wounded.”

He also added “In response to this targeted attack I have called an extraordinary security meeting to review and prevent such security lapses.”

The Taliban group had earlier issued a statement condemning the attack.

Nasrat Rahimi, a spokesman for the Ministry of Interior said the explosion took place at around 10:40 pm local time inside Hotel Shahr-e Dubai in 6th district of the city.

Rahimi further added that a suicide bomber detonated his explosives among the guests of a wedding.

According to security officials, the attack killed 63 people and wounded at least 182 others.
