‘Significant numbers of those killed were shot by foreign soldiers in panic after the blast’
Eyewitnesses have said that their relatives were not killed in the blast at the Kabul airport but in the firing of foreign soldiers from inside the airport.
A BBC report quoted witnesses who said that their relatives were shot from the towers where American soldiers were deployed.
“Many of those we meet, say their relatives were not killed in the blast, but in the firing afterwards,” the report said.
The report quoted many others saying the same thing.
“My relative was not killed Taliban or by ISIS,” a relative was quoted as saying. “The bullet was inside his head, he was shot,” the relative said.

Over 200 people were killed in the Kabul airport with hundreds more wounded after deadly blasts, keeping the city’s hospitals grimly busy all day, international media reported.
The blast was reported on Thursday afternoon, piling an adjacent sewage canal with corpses.
The attacks, planned and executed by ISIS, also killed 13 US armed forces personnel.
