Seven killed in blast near Kabul mosque
A blast outside a mosque attended by Taliban members in the Afghan capital killed seven people minutes after Friday prayers had ended, according to a hospital.
The explosion occurred near the entrance of Wazir Akbar Khan mosque, not far from the fortified former Green Zone that housed several embassies before the Taliban seized power in August last year.
The mosque is now often attended by senior Taliban commanders and fighters.
No or group has claimed responsibility of the attack. But Islamic State militants have targetted Kabul in recent times.
