LONDON: Saudi Arabia’s King Salman condemned the Kabul bombing that left at least 95 killed and 158 wounded on Saturday.
King Salman shared his condolences in a cable to Afghanistan’s President Mohammed Ashraf Ghani on the victims of a blast in the Afghan capital.
“We denounce and disapprove such a sinful criminal act,” King Salman said as cited by the state-owned Saudi press agency, SPA.
The king wished for a “speedy recovery” for those who were injured in the blast and affirmed the kingdom stands “alongside the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan against all machinations that may target its security and stability.”
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman also sent his condolences to the people of Afghanistan and condemned the attack, calling it a terror act that targeted innocent people.
The bombing, claimed by the Taliban, took place a week after a deadly attack on the Intercontinental Hotel in the city.
