Suicide bomber kills Afghan worshippers

A suicide bomber has killed at least 41 people outside a mosque in the northern Afghan province of Faryab.

More than 40 other people were injured.

The BBC's Bilal Sarwary said the attack took place outside a mosque in the provincial capital Maymana, as people were gathering to celebrate the holiday of Eid al-Adha.

He had spoken to a man who survived the attack, who feared nowhere was safe.
