A suicide bomber hiding explosives in his turban blew himself up inside a mosque Thursday during a memorial service for the assassinated half brother of Afghan President Hamid Karzai, officials said. At least five people were killed in the attack, which added weight to fears that security would unravel with the death of southern Afghanistan's most powerful man.
Pushing through a ring of his security men, President Hamid Karzai climbed into his slain half brother's freshly dug grave Wednesday and sobbed alongside the coffin at a funeral attended by thousands of mourners.
