REUTERS – Over 10 people were killed in a blast that took place near Kabul’s international airport in Afghanistan on Sunday, with 60 others injured.

The blast occurred at around 17:00 after the country’s once-exiled first vice-president Abdul Rashid Dostum returned to Afghanistan and left the airport.

According to Afghan Tolo News, a large group had gathered to welcome Dostum at that time, and the country’s interior ministry confirmed that most of the victims were police officers.

“A big explosion happened here. Fire, smoke, and dust rose to the sky. It was so bad I had to run away, and you can see I got a small wound on my neck.” – Witness

According to CBS News, the Islamic States of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attack.
