Afghanistan Mosque Bombing Kills at Least 15, More than 90 Wounded

A bombing at a Shiite mosque in Kunduz, northern Afghanistan has left at least 15 dead and 90 wounded.

“We have received more than 90 wounded patients and over 15 dead bodies, but the number will change. We are still receiving more people,” said a Doctors Without Borders (MSF) member. 

The explosion reportedly occurred during prayer time but there was no information on how it happened. 

“This afternoon, an explosion took place in a mosque of our Shiite compatriots in the Khan Abad district of Bandar, the capital of Kunduz province, as a result of which a number of our compatriots were martyred and wounded. The Mojahedin arrived at the scene with a special unit and started investigating,” said Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid.

There are no groups yet that have taken responsibility for the attack while the actual number of fatalities is still unknown.
