As per news report of NDTV, "Sixteen dead bodies and 32 wounded were taken to the Mirwais Hospital," a spokesman for the southern city's central hospital said. The cause of the blasts was not immediately identified, but it came exactly a week after a suicide bomb attack on Shiite worshippers in the northern city of Kunduz, that was claimed by the Islamic State group. An eyewitness told AFP he heard three explosions, one at the main door of the mosque, another at a southern area, and a third where worshippers wash themselves.
