(CNN) – The death toll from an explosion in the Afghan capital rose to 64 people Wednesday, authorities said, a day after militants targeted civilians in Kabul. The blast rocked Kabul on Tuesday morning — the apparent work of Taliban militants targeting a security team that protects government VIPs, a police official said. In addition to the deaths, more than 300 people were wounded, Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqi said. Despite the target, most of the victims were civilians — including women and children, according to Sediqi.
