A bomb has exploded at an outdoor mosque in northwest Afghanistan, killing four worshippers and wounding 14 others.

Lal Mohammad Ahmadzai, an Afghan National Police spokesman in northern Afghanistan, said on Friday that the bomb was placed on a motorbike parked in a yard of the mosque in Faryab province.

In the city of Herat in western Afghanistan, police say a bomb on a small cart exploded on Friday, killing an Afghan woman and wounding seven other civilians.
