A huge explosion has ripped through a mosque in the Afghan capital Kabul, police say.

The blast is thought to have occurred during evening prayers, killing at least three people and injuring dozens more, according to the NGO Emergency.

Khalid Zadran, the Taliban's Kabul police spokesman, was quoted by local media as saying there had been an explosion in the city's north-west.

Reports say the Siddiqi mosque's imam was among the dead.

4. "It is unclear who was behind the attack, ..."

It is unclear who was behind the attack, which comes the week after a prominent pro-Taliban cleric was killed in a suicide bomb blast, also in Kabul. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the earlier attack.

The BBC report doesn't say what kind of mosque (Shiite/Sunni/whatever).

7. Sufi imam (this may have been added recently)

In the past month, three prominent religious leaders were targeted in Kabul and there were assassinations in other cities.

Last week it was Sheikh Rahimullah Haqqani, known to be close to the Taliban. This time it's Amir Muhammad Kabuli, said to be an adherent of the more moderate Sufi faith.

5. I wonder if parts of the US will become like Afghanistan.

Christo-fascists are unlikely to blow themselves up.

"All the religious books have stated female education is permissible and obligatory, because,..."

He went against the evangelicals of his religion who have their own interpretations of their holy scripture.

8. We need to recognize that religion is a net-negative for humanity.

Sorry, but that's my thesis.
