(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Suicide bombers attacked two mosques in Afghanistan on Friday (October 20) killing at least 72 people including children, officials and witnesses said. One bomber walked into a Shi'ite Muslim mosque in the capital Kabul as people were praying on Friday night and detonated an explosive, one of the worshippers there, Mahmood Shah Husaini, said. Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack, but a statement from the group did not provide evidence to support its claim. Shi'ite Muslims have suffered a series of attacks in Afghanistan in recent months, many of them claimed by the Sunni Muslim militants of IS.
