It is another bomb blasting day in Afghanistan as a huge blast rocked one of the biggest mosques in Afghanistan's western city of Herat killing its influential pro-Taliban cleric and causing many other casualties, local media reported.



"Mujib Rahman Ansari, with some of his guards and civilians, have been killed on their way toward the mosque," said Herat's police spokesperson Mahmood Rasoli.

Rasoli did not say how many casualties the blast caused.

Local sources confirmed that 20 people were killed and nearly 200 others wounded in today's blast in Herat province.
