At least 95 people are dead in Kabul after a suicide bomber detonated an ambulance full of explosives while driving toward a hospital, according to the Washington Post.

Why it matters: This is the third major attack in Afghanistan in one week. Over last weekend, at least 22 people were killed — some of them Americans — in an attack on the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul.
