At least nine people were killed in the attack, the third in the city in a fortnight.

The attacker set off his explosives before passing through a police screening post, suggesting that he may have triggered the bomb after a policeman spotted it. Rahim said three policemen were killed. "Over the past two years, a string of attacks on [Shia] mosques and Hazara gatherings have been claimed by an affiliate of Islamic State".

The event was attended by some of the country's top politicians, including Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah and his deputy Mohammad Mohaqiq, a senior Hazara figure.

ISIS group typically targets Shi'ites. The rest were civilians.

India has played a responsible role in the economic development of Afghanistan, the Trump administration said today noting that the trilateral India-Afghan-US cooperation is not aimed at Pakistan.

"An explosion happened and the person who was in front of me fell down, he was wounded, when I saw him falling down after the explosion, I ran back to the vicinity of the gathering", said Mirza Hussain, a witness.

A suicide bomber has detonated himself at a mosque in Afghanistan's capital of Kabul, a local police officer said.

"Seven were martyred and seven were wounded in the explosion", Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish wrote on Facebook.

She also submitted seven pictures as evidence, two of which were described as "significant" by McGuire. The woman reportedly submitted photos to the police department, which have not been publicly released.


The Taliban urged Islamic scholars on Saturday not to take part in a conference due to take place in Indonesia aimed at building agreement and support for possible future peace talks in Afghanistan.

Also, Pakistani Taliban on Friday confirmed the loss of their 21 members in a rare USA drone strike on their alleged training facility in Afghanistan's eastern Kunar province near the border with Pakistan's Mohmand Agency.

"We are grieved at the loss of precious lives in the brutal attack of terrorism", said a statement issued by the Foreign Office in Islamabad.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani at an global conference in Kabul last week unveiled a plan to open talks with the insurgents, including eventually recognising them as a political party.

Afghan Government officials are yet to react to the development so far.

Tadamichi Yamamoto told the Security Council Thursday the Taliban's argument that it won't talk to the government because the conflict is not between Afghan parties "misrepresents the reality".

"We will consider the Taliban's view in the peace talks", he said.
