    At least six people were killed and 10 injured in an apparent terrorist bombing near a mosque in Afghan capital, Kabul, on Thursday, the TOLO News television channel reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Interior Ministry's spokesman Najib Danesh earlier said there were casualties as a result of a suspected suicide-bombing at the Al Zahra mosque, which is used for religious practices by Kabul's Shiite minority.

    The TOLO News earlier said the explosion at the mosque was followed by sounds of gunfire.
