A suicide bombing at a wedding hall in the Afghan capital Kabul on Saturday night has killed 63 people and wounded almost 200.
The Islamic State group has claimed for the attack.
The blast happened during a wedding ceremony at around 10:40 p.m. local time.
The Taliban denied any involvement, calling the attack "forbidden and unjustifiable."
But the Afghan President said the Taliban "cannot absolve themselves of blame, for they provide a platform for terrorists."
