Three killed in attack on mosque in Kabul: Interior Ministry

16 June 2017

No group has claimed responsibility for the assault, but affiliates of the Islamic State in Afghanistan have asserted responsibility for attacks against Shiites in Kabul past year, including two similar ones at a mosque and a shrine. Another five people were wounded, said Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish.

However, reports indicate at least six people including a local leader and trader identified as Haji Ramazan were killed and around ten others were wounded after in the attack.

Danesh further revealed that the attacker was blocked by police upon trying to enter the mosque.
