More than 80 people have been killed and hundreds injured after two suicide bombers struck a peaceful protest in Dehmazang area of the capital, Kabul.

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

Two suicide bombers had attempted to target the demonstrators, who were gathering in Demazang Square as their four-hour protest march wound down.

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