Three Blasts in Kabul Rock Funeral for Politician's Son
Three explosions interrupt the funeral services for a victim of police-clashes at Saturday's anti-government protest in Kabul, Afghanistan.
People carry a coffin during a funeral for Salim Ezadyar, one of four victims from the June 2 protests demanding better security, in Kabul, Afghanistan, June 3, 2017. The victim-- a politician's son-- was killed when anti-government protests erupted after a suicide bomb attack in Kabul's diplomatic quarter on May 31 killed at least 90 people and injured hundreds more.
Today, at least 12 people were killed and 90 more wounded as a series of explosions targeted his funeral. Witnesses reported three blasts and the funeral was reportedly attended by government officials, including members of parliament.
