Scores of people have been killed and over a hundred wounded in a bombing of a mosque in Afghanistan.

Multiple explosions were reported to have hit the house of worship according to the local authorities in Nangarhar Province.

This eyewitness at a hospital says it happened just as everyone gathered for Friday Prayers.
