At least 10 people were killed and 15 wounded in an explosion at a mosque in the Serahi Alauddin area of Kabul, Afghanistan, on Friday, 29 April, reported Reuters.
Besmullah Habib, a deputy spokesman for the interior ministry, said that the blast had hit the Khalifa Sahib Mosque in western Kabul at around 2 pm local time on Friday.
Hundreds of worshippers had gathered at the mosque for Friday prayers, and officials fear that the death toll could increase further.
Residents told Associated Press that the explosion was so loud that the areas surrounding the mosque shook from the blast.
A nurse at a nearby hospital said that they had received several injured people in critical condition.
The source of the explosion is not immediately known, and no organisation has claimed responsibility for the blast so far.
Last week, a blast in a mosque in northern Afghanistan during Friday prayers killed at least 33, including children.
The blast occurred at Mawlavi Sikandar mosque in the Imam Sahib district of Kunduz.
