    Daesh claimed responsibility for the attack, according to local Deputy police chief Aminullah Amin.

    One person has been killed and seven more wounded in the Western Afghan city of Herat, where two suicide bombers blew themselves up near a Shi'ite mosque, when guards stopped them from entering the Nabi Akram mosque.
