Six wounded in grenade attack at Afghan mosque

KABUL: Six people were wounded in a grenade blast at a mosque in the Afghan capital Wednesday, police said, minutes after worshippers offered midday prayers marking the holy month of Ramadan, reports AFP.

Attacks on public targets have largely diminished since the Taliban seized power in August last year, but the Islamic State group continues to operate across the country.

"We had finished the prayers and were heading out of the mosque when the blast occurred," worshipper Mohammed Yasin told AFP.
