    A military aircraft with the bodies of the United Arab Emirates' diplomats killed in an explosion in the Afghan city of Kandahar arrived in the UAE capital Abu Dhabi on Saturday.

    DUBAI (Sputnik) — According to the WAM news agency, the aircraft delivered four of five bodies at the Abu Dhabi airport, where a special ceremony attended by high-ranking officials was organized.

    The fifth body reportedly has not been identified yet.

    Earlier this week, a total of three terrorist attacks took place in Afghanistan, including the Kabul twin suicide bombing, which left over 50 people dead, and an explosion at a hotel in the city of Kandahar that left at least 11 people dead, including five UAE diplomats, who were tasked with a humanitarian mission.
