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.
