Afghanistan has been in conflict for decades.
But what happened on Wednesday has shocked many around the world.
A powerful bomb hidden inside a sewage truck exploded in the heart of the capital Kabul's fortified diplomatic district, killing at least 90 people and causing immense damage.
Afghan Intelligence is now blaming the Taliban-affiliated Haqqani armed group and Pakistan for the attack.
It's yet another turn in relations between Afghanistan and its neighbour.
The two countries have repeatedly exchanged accusations of supporting armed groups who operate across the border
So, what can the government do to stop attacks like these? and reassure its citizens?
