A double suicide bombing at a wrestling club in the Afghan capital Kabul has killed at least 20 people and injured 70, officials say.
After a suicide bomber killed four people in the club, a second bomber in a car attacked emergency services responding to the incident.
Two journalists from the Tolo news channel were killed and four others injured by the car bomb.
The attacks happened in a predominantly Shia Muslim district of the city.
In a post on Twitter, Tolo’s head, Lotfullah Najafizada, said the outlet had lost two of its best journalists.
