Interior ministry bans public gatherings in apparent attempt to avoid inter-communal strife after attack on Hazara march
Afghanistan has marked a national day of mourning a day after a suicide bomber killed at least 80 people who were taking part in a peaceful demonstration in Kabul. The attack was claimed by Islamic State.
Authorities said 231 people were wounded, some seriously, in the bombing on Saturday afternoon at a march by members of the ethnic Hazara community, who are predominantly Shia Muslim. Most Afghans are Sunni, and Isis regards Shias as apostates.
