The Daesh group claimed responsibility for an attack on a Shia mosque on Thursday that killed at least 10 people in Mazar-i-Sharif, northern Afghanistan.

“The soldiers of the caliphate managed to get a booby-trapped bag” inside the mosque, detonating it from afar after it was packed with worshippers, the group said in a statement.

The attack also wounded 15 people, according to an Afghan official.
