At least 18 people were killed in three blasts that were reported in Khair Khana area of Afghanistan on Saturday.

Three blasts reported at a cemetery in the Khair Khana district, where people gathered for the funeral of Salim Ezadyar, the son of a senior Afghan politician. He was among protesters shot dead by police at violent demonstrations in Kabul on Friday.

Earlier on Wednesday, a deadly suicide truck bomb attack in Kabul’s diplomatic quarter had killed nearly 90 people apart from wounding more than 300 hundreds.

Afghanistan’s intelligence agency blamed the Taliban-allied Haqqani Network with direct help from Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI).
