Dozens killed in Taliban bombings in Afghanistan


The Taliban has claimed responsibility for two suicide attacks in Afghanistan, one of them at a presidential election rally that left dozens dead.

Crowds of people in the north of the country were waiting to hear from President Ashraf Ghani when the bomb went off, killing at least 24 people, including women and children.

The second attack in the capital Kabul left at least 22 dead, including military personnel.
