Suicide Bomb Attack at a Wedding in Afghanistan.

A suicide bomber has blown himself up at a wedding party in Afghanistan, killing at least 22 people.

Up to 40 others were injured in the attack - one of the most deadly in the country for months.

Reports said the assailant walked into the wedding reception for the daughter of MP Ahmad Khan Samangani and detonated his explosives.

Mr Samangani, who had been a mujahideen chief who fought against the Soviets in the 1980s, and against the Taliban during their rule in the late 90s, is said to be among the dead.

One report suggested the bomber had hugged the MP, an ethnic Uzbek, before blowing himself up.

The Taliban has denied responsibility for the attack in Aybak, the capital of the northern Samangan province.
