The Taliban announced the killing of several people, in an explosion targeting a mosque in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

Another 20 people were injured in the blast, which took place near the Eid Gah mosque, where funeral prayers were held for the mother of Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid.

Hours later, the Taliban launched attacks on suspected ISIS hideouts.
