An Afghan official says a bomb has exploded inside a mosque in the capital Kabul, killing one person and wounding three others, including the mosque's prayer leader.

A spokesman for the Afghan Interior Ministry says the attackers targeted the Wazir Akber Khan Mosque at around 7:25 p.m., when worshippers had gathered for the evening prayers.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Islamic State group has been active in Kabul in recent weeks and has in the past carried out attacks inside mosques in Afghanistan.

Taliban insurgents have never carried out an attack inside of a mosque.
