Afghanistan: Massive blast in a Mosque kills 27
Kabul, Nov 23: A massive blast at a Mosque in Afghanistan's Mandozai district on Friday left at least 27 dead, said reports.
Reports quoting Afghan officials say that it was a suicide attack.
All those killed in the suicide attack were working for the Afghan security forces, said Captain Abdullah, a military spokesman in Khost, as per a Reuters report.
The death toll is high as it is a Friday and people would have gathered at the Mosque for prayers. Maybe that was the reason why a Mosque was chosen as the target for bombing so that maximum damage could be inflicted.
No group has taken responsibility so far.
