Media: dead and wounded in a suicide bombing inside a “Hussainiya” in Kandahar

Preliminary reports speak of deaths and injuries as a result of an explosion that rocked a Shiite mosque in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar on Friday.

Local and international media confirmed that the explosion rang out among a crowd of reformers inside the mosque, as happened a week ago in another Hussainiya in the city of Khanabad in the northern province of Kunduz, where a similar attack claimed the lives of at least 120 people, according to some reports.

The Russian “Novosti” news agency quoted a local source familiar with the situation in Kandahar as saying that there is talk of a suicide bombing that left many dead and wounded.

The Afghan “Amag News” agency published the first picture from the scene of the accident.
