Afghanistan’s TOLOnews said that local officials have confirmed the blast but were unable to provide further details about the cause or casualties. Reports suggest that dozens of people have died.

Aamaj News Agency, citing witnesses, stated that as many as 100 people have died in the blast.

Taliban arrests 11 ISIS members in Kabul after explosion outside mosque

Since taking control of the country in August, Afghanistan’s new Taliban government has struggled to neutralize the ISIS affiliate group, Islamic State-Khorasan Province (ISIS-K). The group has claimed responsibility for several deadly attacks including a suicide bombing outside Kabul’s airport in August, which killed 13 US soldiers, dozens of Taliban members, and over 160 Afghan civilians.

On Tuesday, the Taliban said its fighters captured 11 members of ISIS-K in Kabul, just one day after another raid had reportedly wiped out an ISIS-K cell in the city. The offensive came in response to the bombing of the Eid Gah Mosque, the capital’s second-largest place of worship, on Sunday.
