Afghanistan has witnessed an upsurge in violence in recent weeks and in the latest of the attacks, gunmen killed 11 people in two separate attacks on May 20.

A mosque came under the attack of the gunmen in the Parwan province, north of Kabul in central Afghanistan killing eight people and injuring five others.

The Ministry of Interior confirmed the attack in Parwan’s provincial capital Charekar, blaming it on the insurgent Taliban while the Taliban has denied responsibility and shifted the blame to Afghan security forces.

In a separate attack, three people were killed and one child was wounded after the gunmen fired on people outside a mosque as Ramadan night prayers were underway in Korchako village, Sabari district of eastern Khost province, 150 km southeast of the Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul.
