On Wednesday in Kabul, Afghanistan, a truck exploded near the presidential palace and several embassies. The blast is believed to have killed more than 90 people and injured almost 500. No group has yet taken responsibility for the attack, but the Taliban insists they were not behind it.
Then, during a funeral procession on Saturday, another explosion occurred, killing a dozen individuals and injuring another 20.
The Afghan public is mounting increased pressure against the government to curb these types of attacks and regain control of the country.
In late May, on the first day of Ramadan, the Taliban executed an attack in eastern Afghanistan. An explosive-packed vehicle was driven into a military convoy, killing 18.
