Although polling day passed smoothly in Kabul, the Taliban are still keen to show their power to strike within the capital. Early Saturday morning, a suicide bomber struck the convoy of Masoom Stanikzai, the head of Afghanistan's High Peace Council, who is responsible for peace negotiations with the Taliban.

Stanikzai survived, but the attacker and a bystander outside of Kabul's Dawat University were killed, and three were injured. VICE News was the only news crew allowed through the police line to witness the aftermath.
