The bomber came as close to the gathering as he could and detonated his explosives at the checkpoint outside, the spokesman said. Officials said the attacker was on foot.

A suicide bomber exploded in the Afghan capital Kabul, killing at least seven people, Reuters reported.

The death toll has risen to nine, Waheed Majroh, spokesman for the Health Ministry said.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani at an worldwide conference in Kabul last week unveiled a plan to open talks with the Taliban, including eventually recognising them as a political party.

The U.S. has been critical of Pakistan's security efforts. It was the latest in a succession of periodic bombings and other attacks on Shiite mosques, shrines and events that have taken hundreds of lives in Kabul's minority ethnic Hazara community since 2016. The group said it targeted a gathering of Shiites as they were commemorating the death of a "tyrant", an apparent reference to Mazari.

In other developments, the Taliban launched a deadly assault overnight on an army outpost in a remote region of northern Takhar province, killing six soldiers and wounding five, Defense Ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri said.

In return, Ghani said the militants should officially recognise the Afghan government and constitution, a perennial sticking point in past attempts at dialogue.

Tadamichi Yamamoto told the Security Council Thursday the Taliban's argument that it won't talk to the government because the conflict is not between Afghan parties "misrepresents the reality".

Ghani, while offering peace talks to Taliban also called for government-to-government talks with Pakistan. Now obviously the United States has a direct interest in the resolution of this conflict and the Taliban have frequently stated the need for all foreign troops to depart Afghanistan is a precondition for negotiations.
