Last week, a truck-bomb explosion in Kabul left more than 150 dead, making it the deadliest attack in the Afghan capital since the ouster of the Taliban in 2001.

The blast occurred when a sewage truck packed with what Mr Ghani called “military-grade” explosives detonated at the entrance to a fortified area of that city that includes foreign embassies and government buildings. All of those killed were Afghans.
