Suicide bomber hits crowded Kabul Shiite mosqueUpdated on : 16-06-2017 11:06 AM
Suicide bombers struck a crowded Shiite mosque in Kabul late yesterday, killing four people in the latest in a series of militant attacks to rattle the Afghan capital during the holy month of Ramadan. Country's Interior Ministry has called it as a "terrorist attack".


The assault claimed by Islamic State jihadists left eight others wounded when the bombers blew themselves up in the kitchen of Al Zahra mosque after police prevented them from entering the prayer hall packed with worshipers.

The carnage comes at a time Kabul is already on edge following a wave of deadly bombings, which triggered angry public protests calling for the resignation of President Ashraf Ghani's government over spiraling insecurity.
