At least 4 dead and 10 injured after explosion near Kabul mosque

KABUL (AP) — At least four people were killed and 10 wounded after an explosion near a mosque in Afghanistan’s capital Kabul on Friday, with a hospital confirming the death toll.

A column of black smoke rose into the sky and several minutes after the explosion in the diplomatic quarter of the city shots were heard.

The Italian Emergency Hospital in Kabul said it had received 14 injuries and four people were dead on arrival.

Khalid Zadran, a spokesman for the Kabul police chief, said the blast was aimed at worshipers leaving the mosque after Friday prayers.

Interior Minister spokesman Abdul Nafi Takor said the blast occurred on the main road near the mosque. He said the cause was under investigation. Takor said police teams were at the scene and an investigation was underway.

Mosques have previously been the target of attacks.

The blast took place near the Wazir Akbar Khan mosque which, in 2020, was hit by a bomb that killed two people, including the mosque’s prayer leader.
