Explosion at major Kabul mosque injures several

Baku, April 6, AZERTAC

At least six people were left injured after someone threw a hand grenade into the largest mosque in Kabul during afternoon prayer on Wednesday, an Afghan police spokesperson said, according to Deutsche Welle (DW).

Kabul police said one person was in custody after the attack on the 18th century Pul-e-Khishti mosque in the Afghan capital.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. It comes days after a similar incident when a grenade was thrown into the middle of a market, killing one person and injuring 59 others. The Taliban blamed thieves for that attack.

The Pul-e-Khishti mosque is located in a heavily populated part of the city.
