At least 19 people have been killed in an attack on people who were attending a funeral of a protester, who was reportedly a senator's son, in Kabul in Afghanistan. Hundreds of peopleon took to the streets on Friday, June 2, to protest against the lack of security in the city accusing President Ashraf Ghani for failing to protect them.

Around five people died in the protests that took place on Friday after security forces in Kabul fired into the air to disperse the protesters who demanded that government's resignation in the wake of the "car bomb" explosion that took place near the gate of the German embassy in Kabul on May 31.

At least 80 people were killed and over 350 injured in a suicide car bombing that took place near the Indian embassy in Kabul, Spokesman for Ministry of Public Health in Afghanistan Ismail Kawasi had said on Wednesday. The blast took place in the city's diplomatic district, which includes the presidential palace and several embassies.
