Afghanisatan: 29 Killed In Attack On Jawadya Mosque, Herat

A suicide bomber and a gunman killed at least 29 people and wounded 63 at a packed Shia mosque in Afghanistan’s main western city of Herat Tuesday, the latest attack to highlight the country’s deteriorating security situation. The assault on the Jawadya mosque in Herat, which is close to Afghanistan’s border with Iran, came a day after the ISIS claimed a deadly attack on the Iraqi embassy in Kabul. The Herat attack was the latest in a series of assaults on Afghanistan’s minority Shia population. “Based on our initial information two terrorists were involved, one of them wearing a suicide vest who detonated himself while the second one was armed with a rifle. They are both dead,” said the Heart spokesman.
