KABUL: A suicide bomber blew himself up outside a mosque in Kabul on Friday, police said, as Muslims prepare to celebrate one of the holiest dates in the Islamic calendar.

“A suicide bomber who was grazing sheep has detonated himself outside” the mosque, General Salim Almas, criminal investigative director of Kabul city, told AFP.

Almas did not have any information about casualties.

The explosion happened as worshippers were leaving the mosque in the north of the city after Friday prayers.
