UN Special Rapporteur Richard Bennett has called for a thorough and independent investigation of recent terror attacks in Afghanistan, that have resulted in the killing of dozens of people. In a tweet, Mr Bennett said, he is alarmed by continuing terror attacks on civilians, including 16 child casualties in Afghanistan.

The country had been hit by a series of bomb attacks launched by the Islamic State group opposing the Taliban regime. In Wednesday's blasts, at least five worshippers were killed and 17 others wounded in Kabul

after a blast ripped through a mosque during evening prayers. The blast occurred when people were offering prayers in Hazrat-e-Zekria Mosque.

Yesterday, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres condemned the recent attacks and extended his deepest condolences to the families of the victims. UN chief reiterated his call on all parties to ensure the protection of civilians, including ethnic and religious minorities, as well as their right to freely practice their religion.
