Kabul (IP) – Iran’s Embassy in Afghanistan has lambasted an explosion in a mosque in western Kabul that killed 50 worshippers.

Iran PressAsia: In its Twitter account on Friday, the Iranian embassy wrote that the blast in the Kabul Khalifa Sahib Mosque once again revealed that extremist currents do not have mercy on any Muslim, including Shias and Sunnis.

The Embassy noted that the interim government of the Taliban must do more to fight terrorism and extremism and ensure the security of the Afghan people.

The explosion occurred while 400 to 500 people were in the mosque, according to witnesses, leaving 50 fatalities.

Also, on Thursday, local sources in Afghanistan reported twin explosions in another Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif, where Shia Muslims reside.

The explosions killed nine and wounded 13 others.

Terrorist incidents in Afghanistan in the recent week have raised questions about the Taliban's capability to combat terrorism and guarantee people's security.
