In Afghanistan, at least five people were killed Sunday in an explosion outside a mosque in Kabul. A funeral service for the mother of a Taliban spokesman was underway at the time of the attack. No one has claimed responsibility for the bombing, but attacks by ISIS-K have increased since the Taliban takeover in August.
Meanwhile, the Norwegian Refugee Council warns Afghanistan’s economy is on the brink of collapse as the humanitarian crisis continues to grow. Over 18 million people rely on aid to survive, with one in three Afghans facing acute hunger, according to the World Food Programme.
