55 dead in Afghanistan in a suicide bomb attack

  • A suicide bomb attack in a Shiite mosque in the Afghan city of Kunduz left 55 worshipped dead.

  • This is the deadliest attack in the country since the takeover of the Taliban and the withdrawal of US forces from the country.

  • The blast hit the Shiite mosque during the progression of the Friday prayers, which is one of the most important day of the week for Muslims.

  • Often targeted by Sunni extremists who view them as heretics, Shiite Muslims have suffered some of Afghanistan's most violent assaults, with rallies bombed, hospitals targeted and commuters ambushed.
