At least 27 people have been killed and 35 wounded after a suicide attack at Shia mosque in Kabul, Afghanistan police have said.
An attacker entered the Baqir ul Olum mosque during a ceremony, the interior ministry said in a statement.
There was no immediately claim of responsibility.
In July, more than 80 people were killed in an attack on a demonstration by the mostly Shia Hazara minority that was claimed by so-called Islamic State militants.
At least 14 people have been killed and another 26 injured after an attack at a Shia Muslim shrine in the west of Kabul on Tuesday night.
The Afghan Ministry of Interior spokesman Sediq Sediqqi confirmed that the attack was carried out by one person using an automatic rifle and grenade.
The Kart-e-Sakhi shrine is an important religious site for Shia Muslims. Many were praying when the attack occurred as Wednesday marks the holy day of Ashura.
Jamshed, a Kabul resident who witnessed the attack, said the assailant was wearing a police uniform.
He said: "I was selling bread at the gate of the shrine, and then someone came over and placed a package five meters away from me. He was wearing a police uniform, carrying an AK-47.
"He fired a few rounds first, but did not hit anyone. Then he shot a soldier. The soldier fell to the ground dead. He then fired at me, I just dropped my things and fled."
Thirteen civilians and one police officer have been confirmed dead.
Military police arrived at the scene quickly and shot dead the attacker.
The attack at Care International charity came hours after a double blast in another area of the city left at least 35 dead.Read the full story ›
