Bulgaria: At Least 12 People Killed In Kabul Blast

At least 12 people were killed and 32 injured in an explosion near the Id Gah mosque in Kabul, where a farewell ceremony is taking place for the mother of Zabihullah Mujahid, a representative of the radical Taliban that seized power in the country, Al-Jazeera TV reported on Sunday, citing a source in the Afghani security service.

According to the source, the attack targeted Taliban  leaders and officials appointed by them in the interim Afghanistan Cabinet of Ministers, in particular representatives of the Ministry of Defense.

As Mujahid wrote on his Twitter page, "the explosion took place near a large crowd of people, as a result there are civilian deaths." The number of victims hasn't been disclosed.

The Press Secretary of the Afghan Ministry of Internal Affairs Saeed Khosti informed that two people were killed as a result of the explosion. "Two people were killed as a result of the explosion at the entrance to the mosque and four were injured," Aamaj News quoted him as saying.
