KABUL - A suicide attack inside a mosque in Afghanistan's southern Kandahar City killed the head of the provincial religious council and at least three others, the Interior Ministry and the Kandahar provincial government's media office said.

"Bomb blast killed chief of Kandahar Ulema Council and wounded 11 more in the mosque where people were praying for AWK," the media office said on Twitter, referring to Ahmad Wali Karzai, brother of Afghan President Hamid Karzai who was assassinated this week.

Afghan televison channel, Tolo TV, reported a second explosion near the mosque, but gave no further details.
