Blast kills 14 civilians in Khost
 At least 14 people have been martyred and 37 wounded in an explosion at a mosque in the province of Khost.
People had gathered for afternoon prayers at the mosque, which was also being used as a voter registration centre.
Some of the injured are said to be in a critical condition.
No group has claimed responsibility but the Islamic State group has carried out similar attacks in the past.
There have been a number of attacks on voter registration centers since the process started last month for October’s parliamentary elections.
