Police report suicide bombing near Afghan mosque
An Afghan police officer says a suicide bomber has blown himself up outside a Shiite Muslim mosque in central Kabul, the capital.


Abdul Rahman tells The Associated Press that the bomber blew himself up on the street about 1,000 meters (1,094 yards) from the Hussainia Mosque just after Friday prayers as worshippers were on their way home.


Rahman said there were no immediate reports of injuries or deaths other than the bomber.


No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which took place two days before the Muslim holy day of Ashura.
