The UN Security Council has strongly condemned the terrorist attacks in Kabul and Mazar-i-Sharif that led to numerous deaths and injuries among Afghan civilians.

The attacks occurred on the day of Ashura, which commemorates the martyrdom of Prophet Mohammed's grandson, Hussein.

A suicide bomber struck a shrine packed with worshippers in the capital, Kabul, reportedly killing at least 54 people, while another blast struck near a mosque in Mazar, killing four.

The Security Council have called on the Afghan Government to bring those responsible to justice.
