    Dozens of Shia Muslim worshippers have been killed in two bombings in Afghanistan.

    The attacks came on the day of Ashoura, one of Shia Islam's most significant holy days.

    Most of the victims died in a suicide attack on a crowded shrine in Kabul.

    In the second attack, a bicycle bomb in Mazar-e-Sharif killed four worshippers on a road leading to a Shia mosque.
