Funerals were held in Kabul on Sunday for some of the victims of a suicide blast that targeted a wedding party. The attack killed at least 63 people and left 182 injured on Saturday evening.

Footage shows relatives crying as mourners carry the bodies during the burial.

“I believe that suicide attack is an inhumane act, especially at wedding parties. It is the first time that the terrorists attack a wedding hall. Several people have died including women and children. Some bodies cannot be identified, they are lost,” said Shikib who lost his relatives in the attack.

Another relative recalled the blast: “Suddenly a huge explosion occurred inside the hall. I fell with my nephews. I tried to rescue my little nephew, then got back with a light to look after my brothers, I saw my brother who was breathing and dying there.”

The Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attack.
