ranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kan'ani on Thursday condemned the deadly attack that hit a mosque in northern Afghanistan earlier today.
Terrorist attacks on innocent citizens, especially in religious places, are contrary to the teachings of Islam and are condemned, Kan'ani cited.
Asking the Almighty God to bestow forgiveness and blessing on the attack's victims, the senior Iranian diplomat wished speedy recovery for the injured.
16 people were reportedly killed after an explosion hit a mosque in Afghanistan's Badakhshan on Thursday morning.
This is while some sources reported that at least 10 people were killed and 21 others injured following the incident.
The blast targeted the memorial ceremony of a Taliban official who was killed in a bomb blast several days ago.
No groups or individuals have yet claimed responsibility for the attack.
