At least 20 people have been killed and 35 wounded after three explosions hit a funeral ceremony in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul, according to the health ministry.
Saturday’s funeral ceremony in Kabul was attended by Afghanistan’s Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah and a number of other senior officials, but later reports showed that Abdullah has survived the blasts.
The funeral 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.
At least four people died in Friday’s protests, according to Al Jazeera.
TOLO news, an Afghan news outlet, posted images to its Twitter feed showing bodies blasted to pieces after the explosions.
