41 killed in Eid bombing at Afghanistan mosque

Kabul (TIP): At least 41 people were killed and 34 wounded when a suicide bomber wearing a police uniform targeted a mosque in northern Afghanistan’s Mainama city just after Eid-ul-Azha prayers, an official said. “A suicide bomber targeted a mosque while people were leaving the mosque building after the Eid-ul-Azha prayers at around 9 a.m. Friday in Maimana city, killing 41 people and injuring 34 others,” deputy to provincial governor Abdul Satar Bariz told Xinhua. The dead include 23 members of the Afghan National Police, Bariz said, adding that the provincial police chief Abdul Khaliq Aqsay was among the wounded. The bomber wore a police uniform as security was tight. High-ranking provincial officials were attending the prayers in Eid Gah mosque, the biggest mosque in the city, Bariz said. However, local media Tolo News reported that the police chief of Faryab was killed in the attack, citing a member of Afghan Parliament from Faryab province.
