Karzai: Tuesday attacks on Afghan Shi'ites killed 80

KABUL - Some 80 people died in Tuesday's bomb attacks on Shi'ite Muslim ceremonies in Afghanistan, far higher than the previously reported number, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said on Sunday.
"The numbers I got this morning, it is 80 people who died," he said. It was not clear whether he was referring only to the bombing at a shrine in Kabul, which police said on Tuesday had killed 55, or including two other incidents in different cities.
The original toll given for all three incidents was 59 people.
