A series of bombings in Afghanistan highlight security challenges since the Taliban seized power in August.
The Afghan Taliban say they have arrested the so-called “mastermind” of a mosque bomb attack.
Police say he is a major ISIL (ISIS) operative, suspected of helping to kill at least 12 people in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif on Thursday.
Most of the victims were from the Hazara Shia Muslim community.
ISIL claimed responsibility for another bomb blast on the same day that killed four people in Kunduz.
On Tuesday, school children were attacked in a mainly Hazara area of Kabul.
A United Nations report last month found ISIL was behind more than 80 percent of attacks since the Taliban’s seizure of power last year.
So can the Taliban government leaders contain the threat?
