KABUL (Reuters) – Several civilians were killed in an explosion in Afghanistan's capital city Kabul on Sunday, Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said on Twitter.

The blast was near the entrance of the Eidgah mosque in Kabul, Mujahid said. The details behind the explosion were not immediately clear and Mujahid did not say exactly how many had died or were injured.

The blast occurred on the main road just outside the Eidgah mosque where a prayer ceremony of for Mujahid's mother was underway, a Taliban source told Reuters.

"All of the victims are civilians," the source said, adding that there was no information on the exact number of casualties.

Another Taliban official told Reuters at least two civilians were killed and three were wounded in the blast.

No one has claimed responsibility so far.
