Death Toll Rises To 18 In Cemetery Explosions

At least 18 people are dead and dozens wounded in three back-to-back explosions which tore through a cemetery in Khair Khana area of Kabul on Saturday afternoon during Senator Ezadyar’s son’s funeral.

Officials revised the death toll to 18, from an earlier report of 12. However they were not able to confirm the type of explosive.

Ezadyar’s son was killed in the mass rally in Kabul on Friday after security forces opened fire on demonstrators.

Security forces have cordoned off the cemetery area and have advised people to avoid the area.

The Taliban immediately issued a statement via Twitter and denied any involvement in the attack.
