Afghanistan Sunday declared a day of national mourning after a huge bomb hidden in an ambulance killed nearly 100 people in Kabul, sharply rising tensions as insurgents struck in the city for the second time in a week.Central Kabul was unusually quiet on Sunday, a normal workday in Afghanistan, with little traffic and few people on the street.A security alert issued on Sunday warned that Daesh (ISIS) -- which claimed a deadly attack on Save the Children's office in Afghanistan's east on Wednesday -- was planning to attack supermarkets and shops in Kabul frequented by foreigners.Ordinary Afghans took to social media to express their anguish and sorrow at rapidly worsening security as the Taliban and Daesh militants step up attacks on Kabul, turning it into one of the deadliest places in Afghanistan for civilians.The attack came exactly a week after Taliban insurgents stormed Kabul's landmark Intercontinental hotel and killed at least 25 people, the majority foreigners.
