Islamic State claimed responsibility for a deadly attack on a mosque in the Afghan capital Kabul on Thursday, the group's Amaq news agency said.

Two gunmen and a suicide bomber killed at least four people and wounded eight more in an attack at a mosque, the Interior Ministry said.

The three suspected attackers tried to enter the Al Zahra mosque, used by Kabul's Shi'ite minority, but were blocked by police, setting off a gun battle, ministry spokesman Najib Danish said.



The attackers then took refuge in a kitchen, where one detonated a bomb while the other two were killed by security forces, he said.
