A suicide bomber killed 63 people and wounded 182 in an attack on a packed wedding reception in the Afghan capital on Saturday night, the interior ministry said, as violence shows no sign of easing despite hopes for a deal on a USA troop withdrawal.
Women and children were among the casualties, interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said on Sunday.
Witnesses said the building was packed with guests when the blast struck, as it's Afghani tradition to invite hundreds of people to weddings.
"I saw many women and children screaming and crying", he said.
Eye witnesses told the BBC a suicide bomber detonated explosives during a wedding ceremony.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the August 7 attack, even as the terror group negotiates a peace plan with Washington.
On August 7, a Taliban auto bomb aimed at Afghan security forces detonated on the same road, killing 14 people and wounding 145; majority women, children and other civilians.
The blast occurred in a western Kabul neighbourhood that is home to numerous country's minority Shiite Hazara community.
Both the Taliban and IS have carried large-scale attacks in the Afghan capital in the past.
The European Union mission in Afghanistan condemned the blast saying those behind it were "enemies of humanity".
"We are close to our goals", the Taliban figure said, referring to the talks with the United States.
The Afghan government has been sidelined from those discussions, and presidential spokesman Seddiqi said earlier Saturday that his government was waiting to hear results of President Trump's meeting Friday with his national security team about the negotiations. Top issues include a USA troop withdrawal and Taliban guarantees not to let Afghanistan become a launching pad for global terror attacks.
The explosion shattered more than a week of calm in the Afghan capital.
