The Taliban report the explosion of a mosque in the government ministry in Kabul

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — An explosion hit a mosque in a government ministry building in Kabul Wednesday as workers and visitors prayed, a Taliban official said.

The afternoon explosion occurred inside the mosque of the Interior Ministry, which is responsible for security and law enforcement in the country.

A Taliban-appointed Home Ministry spokesman, Abdul Nafi Takor, said in a tweet: “Unfortunately, there was an explosion inside an auxiliary mosque where some Home Ministry workers and visitors were praying. I will share the details later.”

He did not say whether the mosque was inside the ministry or near it. There was no immediate information on casualties or an immediate claim of responsibility.

The mosque explosion follows last week’s suicide bombing at an educational center in Kabul that killed 52 people, according to a tally compiled by The Associated Press, more than double the death toll acknowledged by Taliban officials.

The reason for the lower death toll provided by the Taliban was not immediately clear. In the past, they have sometimes been slow to confirm casualty figures after attacks.

Taliban security officials initially said 19 people had been killed at the Kaaj Higher Education Center, then revised the death toll to 25 over the weekend.

However, The Associated Press spoke directly to the families of 39 of the dead and obtained the names and other information on the remaining 13.
