KABUL (Reuters) - A suicide bomber hit a large demonstration by members of Afghanistan’s Hazara minority in Kabul on Saturday, killing at least 10 people and wounding dozens more, officials said.

Photographs posted on social media showed bodies, apparently at the site of the explosion, close to where thousands of people had been protesting over the route of a planned multimillion dollar power line.
