Explosion is the latest in a deadly series at mosques during Friday prayers in recent months throughout Afghanistan.

A blast near a mosque rocked the Afghan capital as people streamed out of afternoon prayers, but the number of casualties was not yet known.

The explosion on Friday was the latest in a deadly series at mosques during Friday prayers in recent months. No immediate claim of responsibility was made.

“After prayers, when people wanted to come out from the mosque, a blast happened,” said Kabul police spokesman Khalid Zadran. “All casualties are civilians, the exact number is not clear yet.”

The explosion took place in Wazir Akbar Khan, an area formerly home to the city’s “green zone”, the location of many foreign embassies and NATO, but now controlled by the ruling Taliban.
