Kabul Bombing Update

The demonstrators were marching to voice their discontent with government plans, unveiled in April, to let a major power project circumvent Bamiyan, a predominantly Hazara province in the central highlands. 
Following similar large scale protests in May, President Ashraf Ghani established a commission to look into the issue but government attempts to find a compromise had failed. On 19 June, a contract was signed to build another, smaller electricity line through Bamiyan, but that did not satisfy Hazara activists.
