Another bomb attack on Afghan mosque: 3 killed, 15 wounded
The bomb was reportedly hidden in a loudspeaker near the imam's rostrum and when the speaker was switched on for Azaan to begin the Friday prayers the device exploded. After the Taliban takeover of Kabul on August 15, there have been a series of bomb attacks across the country on mosques, hospitals, airport. The attack at Kabul airport had killed over 200 people, including several US soldiers, who were guarding the airport. Early this month the Kabul military hospital was targeted killing over 20 people.

KABUL, Nov 13: Three people were killed and 15 others wounded in a bomb attack on a mosque during Friday prayers in Spin Ghar district of Afghanistan's eastern Nangarhar province, a centre of Islamic State (IS) activities, on Friday afternoon.

A local activist told AFP that a bomb appeared to have been hidden in a loudspeaker near the imam's rostrum. When the speaker was switched on for the Azaan announcement, the device detonated.

The IS (Khorasan) or IS-K, the Afghan branch of the IS was founded in Nangarhar in 2015. After the Taliban takeover of Kabul on August 15, there have been a series of bomb attacks across the country. The Kabul airport attack had claimed around 200 lives.

Earlier this month, the IS terrorists attacked the military hospital in Kabul killing over 20 people and injuring about 50 people. The explosions at the entrance of Sardar Mohammad Daud Khan hospital were followed by shooting by the IS terrorists. Since the occupying US soldiers had left the country on August 31, several bomb attacks have also taken place, especially at mosques, killing over hundred people in the continuing fight in the intra-Taliban alliance for supremacy, especially as the more militant IS-K is seeking an upper hand in the Taliban dispensation.

However, Zabihullah Mujahid, the Taliban spokesman, claims that the IS-K is not a serious threat to the country. It is said they could bank upon the Al Qaeda and Haqqani outfits to face the IS-K challenge.

The violence continues in the midst of a massive humanitarian crisis that has gripped Afghanistan with no money or supplies of essential commodities. According to a UN estimate, nearly 23 million people, constituting half of the Afghan population, are facing a severe food crisis. UN agencies have provided 4.1 million people with food assistance.
