Pope Francis is decrying terror attacks in Afghanistan and asking how much longer people there must suffer such “inhumane” violence.
According to ABC news, Pope Francis denounced the suicide bombing in capital Kabul a day earlier and another recent deadly strike in the Afghan capital which scores of people were killed and wounded.
Lamenting the “terrible terror massacre” in Kabul on Saturday, he noted that just days earlier there was another grave attack which “sowed terror and death in a large hotel” there.
He asked: “For how long will the Afghan people have to put up with this inhumane violence?”
Francis led a moment of silent prayer for the victims and their families and “for all those in that country who continue to work to build peace.”
According to Afghan officials, just on Saturday 27 January, more than 100 people lost their lives and more than 150 others were injured.
A car (ambulance) full of explosives explode near the old building of the interior ministry on Saturday noon.
The Taliban group claimed the responsibility for the attack.
