The remains of Afghanistan's first President Mohammad Daud and his family members were buried outside capital city Kabul on Tuesday after 30 years of his assassination.

Daud, who overthrew the monarchy system through a bloodless coup in 1973 and established Republic of Afghanistan, was assassinated along with 17 members of his family during a sanguinary riot led by the then-Soviet Union-backed leftist group the People's Democratic Party of Afghanistan in 1979.

Ousting Daud from power has been considered as the beginning of catastrophe since when Afghanistan has seen foreign invasions, factional fighting and Taliban-led insurgency in the next two decades.
