According to The Independent, a security official said the bombing injured at least 45 people. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, although it’s unclear whether their claim is legitimate.

The attack, which occurred at the Imam Zamam mosque in Afghanistan’s capital of Kabul, was the latest act of violence committed against the Shia minority in that country.

Just this week, the United Nations reported the Shia people saw 84 deaths and 194 wounded in 2017.
