Kabul (Afghanistan) - As many as 80 people have been killed and around 230 injured in a suicide bomb attack in the Afghan capital Kabul.

ISIL have claimed responsibilty for the assault on a Shi’ite Hazara protest march.

The minority Hazara are of Mongolian and Central Asian Origin.

They were demanding access to a new electricity power line:“We heard a loud, terrible explosion and everyone was covered in blood,” said one marcher.

Another said they were warned about the possibility of carnage:“Today we came out asking for justice in a peaceful manner, the government warned us we would be killed if we did and today we have been killed.”

The Afghan government confirmed they feared a terrorist attack on the march.

The protesters want the new power line to pass through their impoverished Hazarajat province. (Euronews)
