Eine schwere Explosion hat eine von Schiiten besuchte Moschee im Norden Afghanistans erschüttert. Sie ereignete sich während des Freitagsgebets in der Moschee in der Provinz Kundus. Von Dutzenden Toten und Verletzten ist die Rede.

Noch ist die Ursache der Detonation nicht bekannt. Ein Anschlag gilt als wahrscheinlich. Bisher bekannte sich aber niemand dazu. Unklar ist auch, wie viele Menschen genau Opfer der Explosion wurden. Bisher seien 20 Tote und 90 Verletzte in ein von der Hilfsorganisation Ärzte ohne Grenzen (MSF) betriebenes Krankenhaus in Kundus gebracht worden, teilte ein Sprecher der Organisation mit.

  1. A suicide bomb attack on a mosque in the Afghan city of Kunduz has killed at least 50 people, officials say, in the deadliest assault since US forces left.

    Images on social media showed bodies and debris inside the mosque, used by the minority Shia Muslim community.

    More than 100 people were injured in the blast in the northern city.

    No group has said it was behind the attack, but Sunni Muslim extremists, including a local Islamic State group, have targeted the Shia community.

    They consider Shia Muslims to be heretics.
