45 die in Afghan mosque blast
Attacker strikes on important Muslim holiday
A suicide bomber struck in northern Afghanistan on Friday morning, killing at least 45 people, just as worshippers left a mosque to celebrate the first day of Eid al-Adha, the most important Muslim holiday, officials said. It was among several attacks in Afghanistan on Friday, and by far the most lethal. The attack, in Maimana, the capital of Faryab province, also wounded 60 people.
