“Twenty-seven bodies and 29 wounded transported by ambulance so far,’’ Wahidullah Mayar, health ministry spokesman, told Reuters, adding that the number could increase.
Gunmen attacked a ceremony in the Afghan capital Kabul on Friday where a top Afghan political leader, Abdullah Abdullah, was present but escaped unharmed.
Earlier, the shooting started as former jihadi leader and chairman of the High Peace Council, Karim Khalili, was delivering his remarks.
The same commemoration ceremony was attacked in 2019.
Several people were killed and nearly a hundred wounded.
