Local authorities in Kunduz province of northern Afghanistan said that unidentified armed men killed a mosque’s muezzin who performed the prayer call and taught children at the mosque.

The incident took place on Saturday, December 3, in Kunduz city’s 7th police district, the spokesperson for the Kunduz chief of police, Obaidullah Abedi stated.

Local sources in Kunduz province said that the person killed by unidentified gunmen named Abdul Hadi, who called for adhan and was a teacher of young children in a mosque.

The security officials in Kunduz province stated that the security forces have arrested a person in connection with the murder case of the muezzin, while sources attributed the incident to personal animosity.

In a similar attack in late November, in Kabul, the Afghan capital, unidentified men opened fire at worshippers at a mosque that resulted in the fatalities of 6 people, including a father and his 4 sons.

According to a security official, the attacker reached the mosque on Wednesday at around 6:45 in time for morning congregational prayer. He then opened fire on congregants, killing six people, including five members of a family.

The security official further stated that the preliminary investigations showed that the incident was prompted by personal animosity.
