Deadly blasts hit Kabul protest victim’s funeral
Multiple explosions have struck a funeral in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul, killing at least 20 people and wounding 35 others, according to the health ministry.
Saturday’s funeral at the Tapa Marshal Fahim cemetery in the Sarai Shamali area was being held for a protester – the son of Senator Mohammad Alam Izdyar – who was killed during demonstrations a day earlier demanding better security in the country.
Friday’s protesters took to the streets to decry perceived security failures after a massive blast on Wednesday killed at least 90 people in Kabul.
