At least 17 people were confirmed dead and 34 others were wounded by an explosion today at another voter registration event in Afghanistan, says Reuters.
The bomb went off at the Yaqoubi mosque in the eastern Khost province of Afghanistan at around 2:30 p.m. while people were gathered there for afternoon prayer and to register to vote in the countrys October long-delayed parliamentary elections, according to Basir Bina of the provincial police force.
Again such a needless waste of life. Recently we did see the Muslim group Isis release a statement calling for the targeting of voting centers so the likely culprits. These people are determined to bomb their own people back into the stone age. Thoughts and prayers with the dead.
