Aleast 62 people have been killed with 66 others injured after a large explosion tore through a Shi'ite mosque in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar during Friday prayers, with the casualty toll likely to rise.



Taliban interior ministry spokesman Qari Saeed Khosti said authorities were collecting details of the explosion, which took place days after a suicide bomb attack claimed by the Islamic State group on a Shi'ite mosque in the northern city of Kunduz that killed scores of people.



Photos and footage posted by journalists on social media showed many people apparently dead or seriously wounded on the bloody floor of the Imam Bargah mosque.Latest Post
