Kabul: A suicide bomber blew himself up in the midst of worshippers concluding prayers marking a key Muslim festival in northern Afghanistan, killing six people including two local police commanders, officials said on Sunday.

The bomber struck as worshippers were exiting a mosque in Baghlan province’s Old Baghlan City and were congratulating each other on the start of the Eid al-Adha, the Feast of the Sacrifice, said Lal Mohammad Ahmadzai, spokesman for the regional police commander in the north.

Ahmadzai said at least 20 other people were wounded in the blast, which occurred in the city’s Hassin Tal village. (PTI)
