A bomb targeted the entrance of a mosque in the Afghan capital on Sunday leaving a “number of civilians dead,” a Taliban spokesman said.

The bomb targeted the Eidgah Mosque in Kabul, where a memorial service was being held for the mother of Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid.

Though no group has claimed responsibility for the attack, the Islamic State in Khorasan Province, ISKP (ISIS-K) – an affiliate of ISIL (ISIS) – is suspected behind it.
