Following the weekly Friday prayers, a bomb went off outside a mosque in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, killing one person and injuring a number of others.
After Friday prayers, an explosion happened on the major road next to the Wazir Akbar Khan Mosque, according to Kabul police spokesman Khalid Zadran.
He clarified that all of the dead were civilians or worshipers and indicated that additional details about the fatalities would be made available to the media later.
Security personnel from the Taliban have arrived at the bomb site and are blocking traffic.
The Kabul Emergency Hospital verified 14 victims on Twitter, of whom four were already deceased when they arrived.
Local Tolo news was informed by eyewitnesses that a magnetic bomb was to blame for the explosion.
However, the media outlet did not give an exact number of fatalities.
The most recent terrorist assault on the nation’s capital has not yet been linked to any particular organisation. However, ISIS/Daesh has recently stepped up its attacks on mosques around the nation, including Kabul, by taking ownership and admitting credit.
