An already chaotic scene outside the Kabul international airport was turned into a living nightmare by a terrorist bombing attack. RT spoke to an eyewitness of the blast, who shared harrowing details of what had happened.

In an interview given via a video link, Wahidullah Ahmadzai described how he and his relatives almost died near the Abbey Gate of the Hamid Karzai international airport, which was targeted by the terrorist group Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) on Thursday.

Ahmadzai said he accompanied his aunt and her children, to help them get inside and get flown to the UK. They had all the necessary paperwork to leave, but due to the large number of people desperately trying to get inside the airport, the situation was not safe, and any extra assistance could come in handy.
