Two US Soldiers Killed In Afghanistan Convoy Attack

Suicide bomber attacks Nato convoy in south Afghanistan

Ghani, whose government has been under mounting pressure because of deteriorating security across the country, condemned the bombing and called on religious scholars to "raise their voices against the terrorist attacks".

Officials on Tuesday said the attack had killed more than 29 people and wounded at least 64.

Officials feared a rising toll with several of the more than 60 people injured in a critical condition.

The attack took place in the middle of evening prayers when the mosque was packed with about 300 worshippers.

A suicide bomber in Afghanistan killed at least three civilians in an attack on a convoy of foreign troops in Kabul Thursday night.

The Associated Press had earlier cited Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, as claiming responsibility for the attack. "US Forces Afghanistan will provide additional information as it becomes available", he added.

"The patrol was conducting a partnered mission with the Afghan National Army when a personnel-borne IED (improvised explosive device) detonated", in Qarabagh district in Kabul province", North Atlantic Treaty Organisation said in a statement.

Around 30 people were killed and dozens wounded in Tuesday's attack, the fifth this year against Shi'ite targets, four of which have been in Herat, according to the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan.
