KABUL: A suicide bomber killed 32 people including women and children and wounded 41 others when he blew himself up in an imambargah in Kabul on Friday, officials said.

“Unfortunately this evening a suicide bomber detonated himself among the worshippers inside a mosque in Dasht-e-Barchi neighbourhood of Kabul city,” Kabul police spokesperson Abdul Basir Mujahid said.

The interior ministry confirmed the toll of 32 dead and 41 wounded.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack but recent assaults on imambargahs mosques have been carried out by Islamic State militants.

The last attack on Shias in Kabul happened on September 29 as Muslims prepared to commemorate Ashura, one of the holiest days in the Islamic calendar.
