Afghan attacks Taliban, not sectarian, says interior ministry
Two attacks apparently targeting Shia Muslims have killed at least 58 people in Afghanistan.
In the deadliest incident, a suicide bomb struck a shrine in Kabul, while another blast struck near a Shia mosque in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif.
But Afghan Interior Ministry spokesman, Sadiq Saddiqi, said he believed the attacks were not sectarian.
He told BBC News he thought the Taliban were responsible for the attacks.
A Taliban statement said the group had not been behind either incident.
