So-called Islamic State has said it was behind an attack on a protest march in the Afghan capital Kabul that killed 80 people and wounded 230.

The IS-linked Amaq news agency said two fighters "detonated explosive belts at a gathering of Shia" in Kabul.

The attack in Deh Mazang square targeted thousands from the Shia Hazara minority who were protesting over a new power line, saying its route bypasses provinces where many of them live. 

The Taliban have condemned the attack.
