“It was a suicide bomber who blew himself up among worshippers inside the mosque, killing 27 and wounding 35,” said Fridon Obaidi, a senior police official.

There is no immediate claim of the responsibility of blast.

“I was in the mosque, the people were offering prayers. Suddenly I heard a bang and windows broke. I had no idea what had happened. I rushed out screaming,” said Ali Jan, a survivor.

In July more than 80 people got killed in an attack on a demonstration by the Shia Hazara minority that was claimed by Islamic State militants.
