Media Eye News Bureau: Kabul witnessed one of the biggest bomb blasts since a truck bomb attack on May 31 last year as  bomb hidden in ambulance near embassies in Nepal killed 95 and injured 158.

An explosives-packed ambulance blew up in a crowded area of Kabul on Saturday, officials said.

The horrific explosion occurred at around 12.50 p.m. near the old building which still houses some ministry offices.

The Taliban claimed the attack in a message on social network Twitter, stating that "a martyr in a car bomb reached the first checkpoint near the Interior Ministry".

Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said that at the time of the explosion, a large contingent of police officers was in the area.

Last weekend over 20 people died at the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul during an assault by six armed attackers who clashed with security forces for 12 hours.
