A bomb blast targeted a group of lawmakers touring a factory north of Kabul on Tuesday, and reports said at least 90 people, including six parliamentarians, had been killed. The politicians were about to tour a sugar factor in the northern province of Baghlan when the blast went off. Six members of parliament were among those killed, said Faizullah Zaki, a lawmaker from Jawzjan province. Kamin Khan, a police official, said people "everywhere" were dead and wounded, including police, children, lawmakers and officials from the Department of Agriculture. Afghanistan's major television station, Tolo TV, reported more than 100 people killed and wounded. Among the six lawmakers killed was Sayed Mustafa Kazimi, a former Afghan commerce minister and a powerful member of the Northern Alliance, said the lawmaker's secretary, Ahmadi, who gave only one name.
