At least five civilians have been killed in an explosion outside the Eid Gah Mosque in the Afghan capital, Kabul, according to a Taliban interior ministry spokesman. Four other people were wounded in Sunday's attack that targeted a memorial service being held for the mother of Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid.
Sunday's attack is the first to target the capital since late August when an ISIL suicide bomber targeted American evacuation efforts outside Kabul's international airport. The blast killed 169 Afghans and 13 US service members and was of the deadliest attacks in the country in years.
