A suicide bomber has killed at least 27 people at a Shia Muslim mosque in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

Many more were wounded in the blast at an annual Shia ceremony at the Baqir ul Olum mosque in the west of the city.

The attacker arrived on foot and blew himself up among worshippers inside. So-called Islamic State said that it was behind the blast.

Monday's bombing took place during a service to commemorate the death of Imam Hussein, the Prophet Muhammad's grandson and a Shia martyr.
