The bigger of the two attacks hit Imam Zaman Mosque in the capital city of Kabul, killing 39 people.

The explosion occurred at around 6:30pm when the worshippers were doing the evening prayer.

The statement, however, said the local official was killed along with as many as 30 other worshipers.

Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish said in a post on social media that based on initial reports, 20 people were killed and 40 others were wounded in the mosque attack.

Soon after the blast, he said, security forces reached the area and started evacuating the dead and wounded to hospitals.

"We wish Allah's mercy upon those who lost their lives, a speedy recovery to the wounded, and convey our condolences to the brotherly government and people of Afghanistan".
