Kabul (BNA) A bomb exploded inside a mosque in capital Kabul on Tuesday, killing two people, including the mosque's prayer leader, and wounding two others.
Tariq Arian, spokesman for the Afghan Interior Ministry, said the bomb targeted the Wazir Akber Khan Mosque at around 7:25 pm, when worshipers had gathered for evening prayers.
Mullah Mohammad Ayaz Niazi was one of two people killed in the attack, Arian said. He was wounded in the attack and died later at a hospital.
The mosque is located in a high-security diplomatic area near the offices of several international organizations and embassies.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Islamic State group has been active in Kabul in recent weeks and has in the past carried out attacks inside mosques in Afghanistan.
