KABUL (ENNS/MD) At least 63 people were killed and 182 wounded in a blast at a Kabul wedding late Saturday night.

The explosion came just as the US and the Taliban are widely expected to sign off on a deal that would see American troops begin to depart Afghanistan in return for various security assurances from the insurgents.

Interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said the blast occurred in a west Kabul wedding hall around 10:40pm.

He shared on Facebook photos showing several apparent bodies inside a dining area.
More casualties were feared.
