More than a dozen killed, several injured in Kabul blast

An explosion outside a mosque in the Afghan capital, Kabul, killed at least 12 people and wounded 32 others on Sunday. It comes more than a month after a suicide bombing outside Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport took the lives of 200 civilians and 13 U.S. service members.

Qari Saeed Khosti, a spokesperson for the Afghan Interior Ministry, stated three people had been detained in connection with the incident which took place in a crowded place at Eid Gah Mosque in Kabul.

Zabihullah Mojahid, the deputy minister of information and culture, had earlier announced that multiple casualties have been reported in the explosion.

No group has so far taken responsibility for the blast. However, since the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in mid-August, attacks by Daesh-affiliated terrorists against the group have increased. The rise in terror attacks has raised the possibility of a wider conflict between the two groups
