ISIS has claimed responsibility for massacring at least 50 worshipers at Friday prayer in Afghanistan.

The horrific attack took tragically unfolded as people gathered at a Shiite mosque in the Kunduz area.

The murder boast was carried by the Aamaq news agency, which is linked to the death cult, and cited by the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors militant postings.

Religious institutions and members of the country's minority Shiites have not been spared the murders.

The Taliban had confirmed the mosque attack, however, the exact numbers of wounded people have not been revealed before the media.

The residents also termed the scenes "horrifying" after the smoke billowed out from the mosque.

Matiullah Rohani, who's director of culture and information in Kunduz, told reporters the initial evidence revealed it was a "suicide bombing attack".

The footage showed bodies drenched in blood and surrounded by debris inside the mosque.

But, no organisation has claimed any responsibility for the bomb attack.

The minority Shiite community has a rough population of 20 per cent across Afghanistan.
