Deadly attacks strike mosques in Kabul and Ghor

Governance & Politics

Late last month, a bomber detonated an explosive device outside another Shia mosque in Kabul, killing at least six people.

The attack occurred at Imam Zaman mosque in the western Dasht-e-Barchi part of Kabul, Afghanistan, as Shi'ite worshippers gathered for prayers.

The eyewitnesses said the suicide bomber was in the middle of the mosque among the worshippers when he detonated the explosives embedded with his body.

Interior ministry spokesman Najib Danish confirmed the latest attack toll on Twitter.

Security forces cordoned off the area one hour after the explosion.

Kabul police spokesman Abdul Basir Mujahid said there had been an explosion inside the mosque but it was not clear if it had been caused by a suicide bomber or a grenade.

The president said the attacks were aimed at creating division among the people, adding that these nefarious acts will not yield any result and will not affect the unity of Afghans.

In August, more than 40 Shia Muslims were killed in Kabul when Daesh terrorists attacked a mosque packed with worshipers.

Almost 70 people were killed on Friday in a two suicide attacks on mosques in Afghanistan's capital and in the western province of Ghor, officials said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the grisly attack but recent assaults on Shiite mosques in Afghanistan have been carried out by Islamic State militants, who belong to the rival Sunni branch of Islam.

Dozens of people have been killed in two separate attacks at Shia mosques in Afghanistan.
