Ten militants recently blew themselves up as they were constructing a bomb inside a mosque in Afghanistan.

The jihadis were building an improvised explosive device (IED) in southeastern Afghanistan when the explosives detonated and killed all 10 of them, reports Afghan news agency Khaama Press. It’s unclear who the dead men were loyal to, but the anti-government Taliban is known in the region for using IEDs.

Neither the Taliban nor any other insurgent group has commented on the explosion.

Similarly, seven militants were killed while constructing a bomb in the same area of Afghanistan in 2014. Khaama Press released this photo in 2014 of that aftermath.
