Explosion hits mosque in Kandahar city of Afghanistan

Just after a week, another explosion hit a mosque in Kandahar city. There have been no immediate details, however. Heavy casualties are feared after the blast.

The explosion took place during the Friday prayers at the Imam Bargah mosque in Kandahar. As per a Taliban spokesperson, the authorities are collecting further details on the explosion.

Although, no group claimed any responsibility for the attack. But the Islamic State (IS) is known for targeting the minority Shiite Muslims in the Sunni-dominated nation.

The Taliban, on the other hand, assured the safety and security of all communities ahead of the final withdrawal of the US.

Moreover, the IS has already killed dozens of civilians and 13 US soldiers outside the Kabul airport in August.
