Topic: Six killed in gunmen attack on Sufi place of worship in Kabul


Attackers with guns fixed with silencers killed six people after storming a Sufi place of worship in the Afghan capital Kabul on Saturday evening, according to a government statement. Several men attacked the religious building in the western part of the capital during evening prayers, said the statement released by the Ministry of Interior. The rare sectarian attack comes hours after Afghan President Ashraf Ghani pledged his government would pursue peace efforts in a speech before parliament. Last week, a suicide bomber rammed a car laden with explosives into a vehicle belonging to NATO's top envoy in Afghanistan in Kabul, killing one Turkish soldier.
