The Taliban's website describes the massacre as a "continuation of the past acts of terror by the American monsters" and vows revenge.
"The Islamic Emirate assures survivors of the incident that it will, with God Almighty's assistance, avenge the martyrdom of each of the victims on the invading and beast-like murderers and punish them for their barbaric action," it says.

The Pajhwok Afghani News has a very professional and insightful piece. The video is graphic.
