KABUL (Reuters) - The Afghan Taliban denied responsibility for a vehicle bomb attack in Kabul on Wednesday that killed at least 80 people and wounded more than 350.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said in a statement the movement’s fighters had no involvement and said the movement condemned any such untargeted attacks that caused civilian casualties.
