A suicide bomber targeted a large gathering of top religious figures who were gathered to celebrate the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Kabul on Tuesday, killing 55 people and wounding 94.

Scholars, delegates and followers of the Afghan Ulema Council from all over the country were gathered at the celebration. The suicide bomber managed to infiltrate the event and detonated his explosive vest during a recitation of the Holy Quran.

It was one of the deadliest attacks in Kabul this past year. A massive fireball engulfed the hall, which is usually used for weddings, in the Afghan capital. There were said to be around 1,000 people in attendance.

“We slipped on blood,” one witness said to Washington Post. “The face of any dead body I turned around was a friend’s.”

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani declared Wednesday as a national day of mourning.

No terrorist group has yet claimed responsibility for the devastating attack.
