Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani was sworn in for a second term today as his rival Abdullah Abdullah held a parallel inauguration that could plunge the country deeper into crisis ahead of peace talks with the Taliban.

The oath-taking ceremony of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani was attended by hundreds of people, including visiting foreign dignitaries, diplomats and senior political figures.

Ghani was declared as the winner of the election held last September, but Abdullah Abdullah, who disputed the vote, held a parallel ceremony surrounded by hundreds of supporters.

Meanwhile, the Islamic State terrorist group claimed responsibility for an attack today near the presidential palace in Afghanistan where rival presidential inaugurations were taking place.

IS terrorists targeted the inauguration of Ashraf Ghani, firing 10 rockets near the presidential palace in Kabul.
