At least 40 people have been killed and 80 others wounded in an explosion inside a very large wedding hall on the airport road in Kabul city center.
The blast ripped through a venue near the city's worldwide airport, where a gathering of religious scholars was taking place, the Afghan interior ministry said. He said the death toll could rise.
Health Ministry spokesman Wahid Majrooh told RFE/RL that 24 of the injured were in critical condition following the November 20 blast, which targeted a gathering at a wedding hall to mark the Prophet Muhammad's birthday.

"Initial information suggests it was caused by a suicide bomber", interior ministry spokesman Najib Danish said.
He said the number of dead and wounded was "more than 50" so far.
