At least 14 people became victims of attacks on two mosques in Kabul. There is no information on those killed and injured in the second attack so far.

It was reported that the attackers took hostages. According to local media, two of the uniformed assailants were shot and killed by security forces, while another is inside the mosque.

Representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that now the situation in the area is under the control. The area around the mosque is cordoned off by the police.

 Later on, Afghanistan Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi reported on one more attack on another mosque in one of the quarters in the south-west of Kabul. Information about the victims is not provided, Hama Press reports.

None of the existing in the country extremist groups has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.

Holy for the Shiites day of Ashura marks the end of mourning for the Prophet Muhammad's grandson, Imam Hussein, who was killed in Karbala. This event has worsened the contradictions among the Muslims, and ultimately led to the division into the Sunnis and Shiites.

Attacks during Ashura occur in Islamic countries regularly: Sunni extremists consider the Shiites as apostates, and one of their main holidays - contrary to the principles of Islam.

Before the current Ashura day, governments of several Islamic countries recommended the Shiites not to gather in large groups.
