Four died in blast outside mosque in Kabul


Kabul, 29 September(Wishav Warta): A suicide bomber blew himself up outside a Shia mosque in the Afghan capital Kabul on Friday, killing four people and wounding 20 others, authorities said. Hospital program coordinator Dejan Panic confirmed the fatalities from the attack, which happened as worshippers were leaving the mosque following Friday prayers. Police officer Abdul Rahman said the attacker blew himself up on the street about 1,000 meters (1,094 yards) from the Hussainia Mosque.

Mir Hussain Nasiri, a member of the Shia clerics council of Kabul, told The Associated Press that the attacker was disguised as a sheepherder. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which took place two days before the Muslim holy day of Ashura. Mohammad Ismail, police chief of Kabul’s 10th district, said a person suspected of involvement in the attack was in custody.
