“The UN in Afghanistan condemns Sunday’s attack against people involved in an event at a religious site in Kabul.

“At least eight people were killed and 20 others wounded in the explosion that occurred at the gate of Eidgah Great Mosque.

“ It was when a prayer ceremony was being held for Taliban  Zabihullah Mujahid’s deceased mother.’’
