Afghanistan: 10 killed, 29 injured in Kabul suicide bombing
An explosion at a mosque in the eastern Afghan province of Khost on Sunday killed at least 10 people and wounded 29 and the number may rise, a local police official said.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but both the Taliban and a local Islamic State affiliate reject democratic elections and have targeted them in the past.
Last month, an Islamic State suicide bomber killed at least 57 people, including women and children, and wounded 119 outside a voter registration centre in the Afghan capital Kabul in the latest attack on election preparations.
Voter registration centres have been set up across Afghanistan ahead of the long-delayed parliamentary and district council elections in October.
