US President Donald Trump has condemned Saturday's terror attack in the Afghan capital of Kabul that killed at least 102 people, the White House said. The US is committed to a secure Afghanistan that is free from terrorists, said the White House in a statement on Saturday, Xinhua news agency reported.

The suicide bombing, claimed by Taliban, has killed at least 102 people and injured 158 others, officials said. In a statement, Trump called on all the countries to take decisive action against the Taliban and the terrorist infrastructure that supports them.

The attack was the deadliest for months and the fifth major terror attack in the country in January. It followed a Taliban attack on a luxury hotel in Kabul a week ago that killed at least 22 people.
