Afghan Shi'a Targeted In Another Deadly Attack

Shi’ite worshipers in Afghanistan have been targeted by another deadly attack during the Muslim festival of Ashura. At least 14 people were killed on October 12 when a bomb exploded outside a mosque in the northern province of Balkh. The attack came less than 24 hours after the Islamic State extremist group claimed responsibility for an earlier attack on a shrine in the capital, Kabul, that killed 19 people. (AP video)
