Attack on Shi'ite mosque in Afghan city kills at least 29

Suicide bomber targets international convoy in Afghanistan

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for carrying out the suicide attack near a mosque in Herat province of Afghanistan on Tuesday evening, reports said.

However, a United States official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the soldier killed appeared not to be American, citing initial reports, but provided no further details and said that information could change as more details came in.

Terrorists mounted two deadly attacks in Afghanistan, killing scores of people as the war-torn country sees a jump in the suicide attacks.

Mohammad Asif Qaderyan, the father of Captain Fatemah Qaderyan, had been wounded in a Tuesday blast in the western city of Herat and died later, said Farhad Jelani, the provincial governor's spokesman.

As many as 70 more worshipers were wounded in the attack.

Two U.S. service members were killed Wednesday when a suicide bomber struck a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation convoy in Kandahar, Afghanistan.

"We are working to gather additional information as quickly as possible and will release more details as appropriate", the coalition said in a statement.

The NATO convoy they were apart of came under attack in Kandahar province.

The airport in Kandahar is home to a major military base for worldwide troops helping Afghan security forces.
