No group has, however, claimed responsibility.

The mosque was also being used as a voter registration center for parliamentary elections set for October, marking the latest in a series of attacks on election-related facilities. The Taliban has denied involvement.

Last month, a suicide bomber killed at least 60 people and wounded more than 100 others who were registering to vote in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

The engineers were travelling to a government-run power station in a minibus when they and their Afghan driver were stopped and abducted, Baghlan police spokesman Zabihullah Shuja said.

TOLOnews said that some unidentified armed men abducted six Indians and one Afghan employee of Indian company KEC in Bagh-e-Shamal village of the provincial capital Pul-e-Khomre on Sunday, citing local officials.

New York Mets part ways with pitcher Harvey
Because of Harvey's $5,625,000 salary, a trade may be hard to work out unless the Mets agree to send cash as part of a deal. The Dodgers also have Ross Stripling, although he appears to be too valuable in the bullpen to move to the rotation.

Nobody immediately claimed responsibility for that attack, however Taliban as well as a regional Islamic Condition affiliate reject democratic elections and have targeted those in the past.

KEC is one of the largest Indian companies in Afghanistan that is responsible for electricity supply in the country, the report said.

A vehicle carrying shopkeepers on their way to a market has struck a roadside bomb in Afghanistan's northern Faryab province, killing seven of them.

However, provincial deputy director of public health Gul Mohammad Mangal said at least 12 people had been killed and 33 wounded in the explosion.

The police chief has a fearsome reputation fighting the Taliban and has survived many assassination attempts.
