US President Donald Trump issued a stinging statement last evening deploring a Taliban-orchestrated suicide car bombing that killed at least 95 people and wounded 158 others in Kabul, Afghanistan.

In comments released by the White House, Trump said: "This murderous attack renews our resolve and that of our Afghan partners."

"The Taliban's cruelty will not prevail," the statement continued. "The United States is committed to a secure Afghanistan that is free from terrorists who would target Americans, our allies, and anyone who does not share their wicked ideology. Now, all countries should take decisive action against the Taliban and the terrorist infrastructure that supports them."

The bombing, which unfolded earlier in the day, was the deadliest insurgent attack in the country so far this year.
