At least 30 Shiite Muslims martyred in suicide bombing inside Baqer-ul-uloom mosque in Kabul/ Pics

 A suicide bomber has blown himself up inside a Shia mosque in the Afghan capital Kabul, killing at least 30 people, according to the interior ministry.

The explosion triggered by a suicide bomber happened in Baqer-ul-uloom mosque in the Darul Aman area.

Kabul police chief Abdul Rahman Rahimi said that 70 people were also wounded. Police said more deaths were feared.

Several police vehicles raced from the scene, ferrying the wounded to hospital.

Worshippers were gathering to mark the Shia ceremony of Arbaeen, which comes 40 days after the major festival of Ashura.

Ashura commemorates the death of Imam Hussein, grandson of the Prophet Muhammad who was martyred in the year 680.

ISIS claimed responsibility via a statement published by its media wing, Amaq news agency.

Earlier this year a powerful blast targeting Shia worshippers during Ashura killed 14 people in northern Afghanistan.

In July, ISIS group claimed responsibility for twin explosions that ripped through crowds of Shia Hazaras in Kabul, killing at least 85 people and wounding more than 400 others.
