Gunman kills 6 worshippers at Afghan mosque

by Edit

ISLAMABAD- At least six civilians were killed and one injured in a shooting attack on a mosque in Afghanistan’s western province of Herat on Monday evening, officials confirmed.

According to a statement by Interior Ministry spokesman, Abdul Mateen Qani, an unknown gunman opened fire on worshippers inside the mosque located in the Guzara district.

The UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) condemned the attack and stressed the urgency for investigations to identify the perpetrators and hold them accountable.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.

Since the Taliban’s return to power in August 2021, attacks have significantly reduced in the war-torn country.

However, so-called Islamic State offshoots are still considered to be active in the country and also claim attacks from time to time. (dpa/NAN)
