The latest casualties came a day after U.S. special envoy to Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad announced he would be returning to the Qatari capital of Doha to resume peace talks with the Taliban aimed at ending the longest war in U.S. history. The diplomat raised hopes last week that a deal may have been reached following the eighth and latest round of talks with the militant group, but said Tuesday he would be going back to Doha to “try and close on remaining issues.”

On Friday, President Donald Trump convened a meeting of top national security figures he later described as “very good.” He suggested both sides of the conflict were “looking to make a deal—if possible.”

The following day, however, a deadly blast at a wedding in the Afghan capital of Kabul killed some 63 people and wounded nearly 200 more. The attack, claimed by the Islamic State militant group (ISIS)’s local Khorasan branch, offered a grim reminder of the ongoing conflict that continued to claim the lives of civilians and soldiers alike.
