Kabul Blast : Four Killed, 10 Injured In Attack Outside Mosque

A blast outside a Mosque attended by Taliban members in the Afghan capital killed four people minutes after Friday prayers had ended.

The explosion occurred near the entrance of Wazir Akbar Khan Mosque, not far from the fortified former Green zone that housed several Embassies before the Taliban seized power in August last year.

The Mosque is now often attended by senior Taliban Commanders and Fighters.

Unverified images posted on social media showed a mangled car engulfed in fire on a road outside the Mosque.

Kabul Police spokesman confirmed the blast and "casualties", but did not provide details.
