Written by on 28/08/2021

The second British Afghan killed in Thursday’s terror attack in Kabul has been named by his family as Musa Papal.

Mr Papal, 60, left his home in north London at the end of May to visit family in Kandahar and was killed in the airport blast.

His son Hidayat told Sky News his father moved to the UK in 1999 and was a British passport holder.

Mr Papal’s grandson, an Afghan national, is still missing after the blast.

The Foreign Office has been approached for comment.
