Gunmen armed with machine guns opened fire on people praying at a mosque in central Afghanistan, killing two people and wounding 12 others, officials said Wednesday. The assailants, numbering more than five, starting shooting inside the mosque in the Dashte Toop area of Wardak province late Tuesday, said provincial police chief Eiwaz Khan Mazllum. A local teacher was among those killed. Police are searching for the attackers, who fled after the attack, he said. Authorities were trying to determine the motive behind the shooting, said Muhibullah, the chief of criminal investigations in the province. Muhibullah, like many other Afghans, goes by only one name.
