At least 25 people have been killed in two back-to-back suicide attacks in Kabul. Another blast in Kandahar province to the south left 11 children dead, and in a third attack in the east, the BBC says one of its Afghan reporters was killed.
The suicide bombing in eastern Afghanistan killed over 20 people and injured dozens more. The target of the attack was a mosque belonging to Shiites, who have been a frequent target of militant Sunni groups.
Multiple accounts suggest the city of Ghazni is largely under the control of Taliban militants. Scores are reportedly dead and scores more injured on both sides as the battle for the city continues.
Despite the bloody war between the Afghan government and the Taliban, the two share a common enemy: the "Islamic State." This has led to some inadvertent cooperation between both sides.
President Nicolas Maduro was unharmed after a blast interrupted his TV address. He blamed far-right factions for the "assassination" attempt, and his government already started taking action and arresting "terrorists."
