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.
The Daesh* terror group has reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack, however no evidence for the claim has yet been provided.
According to Walizada, the injured people have been taken to local hospitals and the death toll may increase.
