Afghanistan: At Least 20 Martyred in Herat Mosque Attack
Local Editor

A suicide bomber and another militant martyred more than 20 people at a mosque in Afghanistan's main western city of Herat Tuesday.


Afghanistan: At Least 20 Martyred in Herat Mosque Attack

It was the latest attack to highlight a deteriorating security situation in the country.

The assault on the Jawadya mosque in Herat, close to the Afghanistan-Iran border, came a day after Daesh [the Arabic acronym for the Takfiri ‘ISIS/ISIL' group] claimed a deadly attack on the Iraqi embassy in Kabul.

"More than 20 bodies, and more than 30 wounded have so far been brought to the hospital," after the mosque attack, Rafeeq Shirzai, a spokesman for the hospital, told AFP.

Meanwhile, Herat police spokesman Abdul Ahad Walizada said the assault took place around 8:00 pm when "a terrorist attack was carried out on a mosque in the third security district of Herat city."

"Based on our initial information two terrorists were involved one of them wearing a suicide vest, who detonated himself while the second one was armed with a rifle. They are both dead," he added.
