A suicide bomber targeted a mosque at the entrance to Kabul’s fortified Green Zone during evening prayers Tuesday, wounding at least three people, an official said.

“A suicide bomber blew himself up inside a washroom at Wazir Akbar Khan mosque,” interior ministry spokesman Tareq Arian told AFP.

The mosque is accessible from inside the Green Zone, where several embassies and international offices are located.
