KABUL - An explosion occurred near the airport in the Afghan capital Kabul on Sunday, shortly after Vice President Abdul Rashid Dostum left the area following his arrival home from more than a year in exile in Turkey.
Kabul police spokesman Hashmat Stanekzai said the blast occurred near an airport entrance where supporters had been waiting to greet Dostum as his motorcade passed on its way to the city center.
Live television pictures showed Dostum greeting supporters at his office compound not long after the explosion.
