14 Killed in Attacks Across Afghanistan

HeadlineMay 26, 2022

In Afghanistan, at least 14 people were killed in a series of bomb attacks on Wednesday. Five people died and 22 others were injured after a bomb exploded at a mosque during evening prayers in the capital Kabul. Meanwhile, in northern Afghanistan, nine people were killed and 15 others injured in a series of blasts targeting minivans carrying minority Shiite Muslims in the city of Mazar-e-Sharif. Afghanistan’s ISIS affiliate claimed responsibility for those attacks. The violence came as UNICEF warned some 1.1 million Afghan children are expected to suffer from severe acute malnutrition this year.
