Bomb Attack on Mosque in Afghanistan’s Kandahar Province Kills at Least 32

HeadlineOct 15, 2021

In Afghanistan, a massive explosion at a Shia mosque in Kandahar has killed at least 32 people during Friday prayers and injured scores of others, according to local officials. The blast came one week after an explosion at a mosque in Kunduz killed at least 72 people. That attack was claimed by the Islamic State in Khorasan Province, known as ISIS-K.

In other news from Afghanistan, the U.S. said it will resume regular evacuation flights before the end of the year to get remaining U.S. citizens, residents and qualifying visa applicants out of the country.
