MAZAR-I-SHARIF, Afghanistan, Nov 6 (Reuters) A suicide bomber killed 90 people and wounded 50 today in an attack on a delegation of visiting parliamentarians in the northern Afghan town of Baghlan, the director of the local hospital said.

''The bodies of 90 people have been brought to the hospital so far and 50 people have been wounded,'' Baghlan hospital director Dr Khalilullah told Reuters.

Five parliamentarians, including opposition spokesman Mostafa Kazemi, were among those killed, the provincial governor said. Baghlan's intelligence chief, Abdurrahman Sayedkhail, said the number of casualties was so high it was impossible to give an accurate number for now.
