An Afghan hospital official says at least 20 people have been killed by an explosion and gun attack on a Shi'ite Muslim mosque in the western city of Herat.
Mohammad Asif Rahimi, governor of Herat, said at least 29 people were killed and 64 wounded in the incident which came two months after an attack on a 12th century mosque known as the Jama Masjid in Herat, in which seven people died.
Other local reports suggested a combined explosion and gunfire attack.
The Daesh Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack.
Other images circulating on social media show bodies lying on the floor outside the mosque.
