Car Bomb in Kabul Injures Scores in Masjid Attack


Taliban’s Kabul police confirms 7 killed and 41 wounded in today’s car bombing in front of Wazir Akbar Khan Masjid in Afghanistan’s capital of Kabul.

Italian non-governmental organisation Emergency, which operates a hospital in Kabul, said it had received “14 casualties” from the explosion saying that “Four of them were already dead on arrival.”

While overall violence has significantly dropped across Afghanistan since the war ended with the Taliban returning to power, there have been regular bomb attacks in Kabul and other cities.

While no one has claimed responsibility religious gatherings and places of worship are favorite targets of ISIS and this attack targeting Friday prayers at a busy Masjid is likely the work of the group.
