Afghan bomb kills Logar governor Jamal in mosque

The governor of Afghanistan's Logar province has been killed in a blast in a mosque, during prayers for the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha.

Arsala Jamal was standing at the front of the mosque greeting worshippers when a bomb hidden under a table detonated.

The BBC's David Loyn said the governor was close to President Hamid Karzai.
