Posted: August 26, 2011 in Daily incidents, Stories
Second blast today that killed beggars in Afghanistan since morning.

A motor-bike bomb goes off within the exit gate of a mosque in Almar district of Faryab province today at 01:30 when people were leaving the mosque after the grand Friday prayer.

As a result, two people were killed, fourteen others wounded. There are beggars included among the dead and wounded.

The police chief told me all the people died and injured were civilians.

Friday is a relatively more valuable day for Muslims around the globe than the normal days.

There is a special prayer for Friday. Its done only on Fridays. Regular prayer for regular days.

This is the last Friday of Ramadan (Fasting month for Muslims).

Today, in two separate incidents including this one,  a total of 3 people were killed, and 24 were wounded. All of them were civilians and beggars included.
