Four people were killed today, Sunday, in an explosion that took place in the Khwaja Bogra district of the Afghan capital, Kabul.

A security source told "Sputnik" that the killing of the 4 people came as a result of a car bomb explosion in the Khwaja Bogra neighborhood, which occurred in the capital, Kabul.

Earlier, the tourist organization "ISIS" claimed responsibility for an attack on a Sikh temple in the Afghan capital, which killed at least a worshiper and injured seven others.

The claim of the organization came in a statement posted on its news website late Saturday, the AP reported.

The organization said the attack on the Sikh and Hindu temple was in a response to alleged insults by an Indian government official to the Prophet Muhammad and did not name the official.

On the other hand, Afghan officials noted that gunmen attack a Sikh temple, known as a "Gurudwara", on Saturday morning and an exchange of fire broke out between the attackers and Taliban fighters seeking to protect the building.

The attackers detonated a car bomb outside the temple, but no injuries were reported. The officials said the militants before that threw a grenade that causes a fire near the temple gate.
