The attack came as the Taliban and the United States are trying to negotiate an agreement on the withdrawal of U.S. troops in exchange for a Taliban commitment on security and peace talks with the government.

The Taliban denied responsibility and condemned the attack at a west Kabul wedding hall in a minority Shi'ite neighborhood.

Women and children were among the casualties, Afghanistan's interior ministry said, and more than 180 were wounded.
