15 Killed, 30 Wounded As Blast Rocks Funeral Ceremony In Afg

At least 15 people were killed when a bomb ripped through a memorial service in Afghanistan's Badakhshan province on Thursday.

A former Taliban police official was among those killed and more than 30 were also wounded in the explosion.

The explosion occurred near Nabawi Mosque.

There were concerns that the number of casualties could rise further as more information becomes available.

The bombing apparently targeted the memorial service for Nisar Ahmad Ahmadi, the deputy governor of Badakhshan who was killed in a car bombing on Tuesday.

That attack in Faizabad, the capital of Badakhshan, also killed the deputy governor's driver and wounded 10 other people.
