Islamic State claims responsibility for attack in Herat, Afghanistan

Islamic State claimed responsibility for a deadly attack on Saturday in the western Afghan city of Herat, it said in a post on Telegram on Sunday.

At least six people were killed when a blast ripped through a minivan in the city, officials said. Since the Taliban took over in August, a series of blasts and attacks, some claimed by Islamic State, have taken place across Afghanistan. (Reporting By Moaz Abd-Alaziz Editing by Frances Kerry)
