The attack occurred as worshippers gathered for afternoon prayers on the Islamic holy day of Friday.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but Islamic State militants have attacked Shi’ite Muslim targets in Afghanistan in recent months.

Amnesty International has accused the death cult of carrying out a genocide of Shia within Iraq and Syria since 2014, with thousands killed and tens of thousands forced to flee their homes.
