The Afghanistan Ministry of Interior (MoI) spokesman, Sediq Sediqi, in a Twitter message, said the second attack was conducted on Charyar mosque located in Karte Char area of the city.

He said the Special Forces have arrived in the area to repulse the attack by the militants.

The first attack on Karte Sakhi shrine was launched by a group of three to four militants who started opening fire on worshippers in the shrine, leaving at least 14 people dead.

Several explosions were also heard from the vicinity of the shrine as the militants took the mourners hostage and continued to clash with the security forces for several hours.

The Ministry of Interior (MoI) officials said at least 36 peole were also wounded in the attack although the casualties toll could rise.
