An explosion in a mosque killed 62 people in eastern Afghanistan. A UN report said that civilian casualties are at a record high with July to September the deadliest months this year. Islamic insurgents were responsible for 62%, while pro-government forces caused the rest. A spokesperson for Amnesty International said of the mosque attack, “Flagrant violations of international humanitarian law such as deliberate targeting of civilians is not something anyone should get used to or learn to ignore.”

Pray that the Sovereign God will reveal himself to many Afghani people as the One who cares about their earthly and eternal future (The Bible, John 17:3).
