Suicide bomber kills 14 after Afghan clerics outlaw suicide bombings


A motorcycle suicide bomber killed 14 people near a gathering of Muslim clerics in the Afghan capital on Monday after they had issued a fatwa against suicide bombings, officials said, in the latest in a series of attacks to hit Kabul, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

The bomb exploded at the entrance to a giant tent, near residential buildings in the west of Kabul, after most the clerics had left, a witness said. Women living nearby were crying as they gathered with their families.

 

The bomb killed seven clerics, four security officers and three people whose identities were unknown, a senior government official said.

 

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which underlines deteriorating security ahead of parliamentary and district council elections set for Oct. 20.
