Another suicide attack has occurred at a Shi’ite mosque in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar during the juma’at prayers.

The attack at what is the largest Shi’ite mosque killed 32 people and injured at least 68 more.

The incident was confirmed by government-owned Bakhtar News Agency on Friday.

“Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan officials in Kandahar have said, 32 people lost their lives and more than 68 others were wounded after three back-to-back explosions occurred inside Imam Bargah mosque (Shia) in first Police District of Kandahar city this afternoon,” Bakhtar News Agency said on Twitter.
