Two people were killed and at least five others injured after a suicide bomber struck outside a Shiite mosque in Kabul, Afghanistan on Thursday.
The attacker was initially prevented from entering the mosque by police, according to The Independent. After participating in a gun fight with the police, however, he was able to enter the kitchen area where he proceeded to detonate his bomb.
The Islamic State took responsibility for the attack.
Mosques have been more crowded than usual in the evening hours recently as Muslims observe the holy month of Ramadan.
A truck bomb in Kabul on May 31 killed more than 150 people.
