So-calleAfghanistan Kabul mapd Islamic State, on Saturday 07/23/2016,  has said it was behind an attack on a protest march in the Afghan capital, Kabul, that killed 80 people and wounded 230.

The IS-linked Amaq news agency said two fighters “detonated explosive belts at a gathering of Shia” in Kabul. The attack in Deh Mazang square targeted thousands from the Shia Hazara minority who were protesting over a new power line, saying its route bypasses provinces where many of them live.
