This has really been a bad few months for Muslim bomb makers. Maybe they’ve been making too many bombs in the kitchens of their moms. Maybe the spring heat or the Hashish is getting to them, but the accident rate is through the roof. (via Religion of Peace)
A local Taliban commander was among five militants killed following an explosion inside a mosque in eastern Ghazni province of Afghanistan.
Local government officials said the militants were killed while they were making an improvised explosive device (IED) to carry out a roadside bomb explosion.
Deputy provincial governor Mohammad Ali Ahmadi said the incident took place on Saturday morning in western party of Ghazni city.
Ahmadi further added that the Taliban commander was recognized as Mullah Sadiq who was killed along with four other militants following the explosion.
At least seven militants were killed while making improvised explosive devices (IEDs) inside a mosque in Deh Yak district late in March.
