Suicide bombings in the capital of Afghanistan Saturday killed at least 80 people and injured more than 230, many of whom were taking part in a political demonstration, authorities said.
The blasts occurred in Dehmazamg Square near the Kabul Zoo on the main road to Parliament, Health Ministry spokesperson Ismail Kawosi told NBC News.
Three suicide bombers worked in tandem in the attacks, according to the Ministry of the Interior. While one bomb was detonated, a second bomb exploded prematurely and a third bomber was shot dead by police.
The protesters, mostly ethnic minority Hazaras, were marching to demand that their impoverished home province be included in a major new electricity line, according to The Associated Press.
It was not immediately clear who was behind the bombings.

The 18-year-old gunman who killed 9 people and injured 27 others in the German city of Munich was obsessed with mass shootings, police said Saturday. Investigators searched the unnamed man's home, which he shared with his parents and a brother, overnight and revealed he had "looked intensively" at the subject of "shooting rampages," NBC News reported. A book titled "Rampage in Head: Why Students Kill" was found among the suspect's belongings, but "no indication" that he was linked to extremist groups such as ISIS. They believe he acted alone. It also appeared that the attacker had hacked a young woman's Facebook account and posted a message to lure people to the mall for a free meal, police investigator Robert Heimberger told journalists. Seven of the nine who were killed during the Friday evening rampage were themselves teens, officials announced. Three were female.

It was her ears!

She walked into the Baywatch Animal Shelter when a partial litter of puppies were let out of a kennel. Rickman focused right in on a brown dog named Maggie with big ears. The 4-month-old puppy had traveled all night from a kill shelter in Florida before landing in Baywatch's care.
