30 killed in two Afghan mosque blasts

Afghanistan Suicide attack in Kabul mosque at least 30 killed

A suicide bomber killed 32 people including women and children and wounded 41 others when he blew himself up in a Shiite mosque in Kabul on Friday, officials said.

The Afghan president has issued a statement condemning the attacks on mosques in Kabul and in western Ghor province that killed at least 63 people during Friday prayers.

The blast occurred as worshipers gathered for prayer inside the Imam Zamam mosque at around 6.00 p.m.

Ghor was among the relatively calm provinces in north-western parts of the country but the province has started to witness growing instability during the recent years as both the Taliban insurgents and ISIS loyalists attempt to expand their foothold in this province.

Sectarian tensions have raged for some time between members of the Sunni and Shiite denominations of Islam.

A statement posted by the band states Downie's beloved children and family were close by when he passed. Downie's final solo album "Introduce Yerself" is scheduled to be released posthumously on October 27.

Another 45 people were reportedly injured in the attack that follows the attack on another Shia mosque in Kabul on September 29. But there were no immediate claims of responsibility for Friday's attacks.

Taliban raids on Afghan military installations aren't uncommon.

On Tuesday, at least 41 people were killed and scores were injured in an attack on police headquarters in the Paktia provincial capital of Gardez, located in eastern Afghanistan.

The eyewitnesses said the suicide bomber was in the middle of the mosque among the worshippers when he detonated the explosives embedded with his body.
