An attack on Friday in eastern Afghanistan killed 62 people and wounded 36 others, provincial officials said. An explosion caused the roof of a mosque in the Nangarhar province to collapse. The Taliban and Islamic State are both active in the area, but no one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid condemned the violence in a statement.
