Afghanistan: 11 killed in Kabul airport suicide blast on Afghan VP's return — officials

A suicide bomber struck near Kabul airport on Sunday, killing at least 11 people and injuring 14, according to officials. The blast occurred shortly after Afghan Vice-President Abdul Rashid Dostum returned to the country from his self-imposed exile. The attacker reportedly detonated explosives close to the airport entrance where Dostum's supporters had gathered to greet the politician... Еще. According to officials, the Afghan vice president was unharmed, having passed through the area a short time before. «It’s good that it was not a car bomb attack otherwise it would have killed hundreds of people because there was a heavy traffic jam near the area,» said Shafiullah, a witness to the attack. Dostum had left Afghanistan in May 2017 amid accusations of having given orders to his men to kidnap and rape a political rival. Since then, he had been living in Turkey.
