This is the largest attack since the US and NATO forces left Afghanistan. The Taliban has blamed IS for the blast. Kundhuz is a predominantly Shia Muslim area. IS regularly attacks Shia Muslims.
Kundhuz provincial deputy police chief Mohammed Obaida said the Taliban would ensure the security of the Shia brothers. A mosque in Kabul was also bombed last Sunday. The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a church, killing at least 12 people and wounding 32 others.
