Eight members of a family were killed in an attack by unidentified armed men at a mosque in Nangarhar province on Saturday evening, the provincial Governor Zia-ul-Haq Amarkhel said.

Citing Amarkhel, TOLO News reported that the incident took place around 9 pm local time at a mosque in Jalalabad city's district 9 after unidentified gunmen opened fire on the family members while they were at praying.

"According to preliminary reports, Haji Abdul Wahab's five sons and three nephews were killed in the shooting," said Amarkhel, adding that "it was due to personal enmity."

However, he said that investigations are ongoing over the incident.

No one has been arrested over the shooting so far, police said.
