Global News published this video item, entitled “Taliban stand guard outside Kabul mosque, hospital after deadly blast” – below is their description.

Armed Taliban members stood guard outside a mosque in Kabul on Sunday after several civilians were killed in an explosion nearby, according to a group spokesperson. Members also took up positions outside the hospital where the injured had been taken.

The blast happened earlier in the day near the entrance of the Eidgah mosque, just outside of where a prayer ceremony was underway.

No one immediately claimed responsibility, however, since the Taliban’s takeover in August, attacks by Islamic State group militants have increased. ISIS considers the Taliban its enemy and has claimed responsibility for other attacks, including several killings in the provincial capital of Jalalabad.
