Kabul, 19 June (Reuters)
After claiming responsibility for an attack on a gurudwara in the Afghan capital Kabul on Saturday, Islamic State said the attack was in response to an insult to the “Prophet Mohammad”. At least two people were killed and seven were injured in the attack. The local branch of Islamic State said on a channel that the attack was in response to derogatory remarks made by an Indian government spokesperson on the Prophet Muhammad. A Taliban spokesman said the attackers had loaded a car loaded with explosives but it detonated before reaching the target. The militant group said the militants fought alongside Taliban fighters for more than three hours.
