Grief turns to anger over Kabul suicide attack

Kabul: Grieving Afghans buried their loved ones in Kabul on Monday amid growing anger over a suicide attack on a voter registration centre in the city that killed at least 57 people including children and wounded more than 100. The bomber blew himself up on Sunday morning in a large crowd queueing to collect their national ID certificates so they could register to vote in long-delayed legislative elections scheduled for October.
The force of the blast, which was claimed by the Islamic State group, caused carnage in the street in the heavily Shiite-populated neighbourhood in the west of the Afghan capital.
Pools of blood and body parts mixed with shattered glass, blood-stained ID documents and passport-sized photos on the ground.
Anguish turned to anger on social media as ordinary Afghans blamed the Kabul government for failing to protect its people — a constant refrain after such attacks.
