Pakistani intelligence officials said Abdullah was killed in the Chawgam area in the eastern province of Kunar on March 6 when a training camp for suicide bombers near the Afghan border was hit by two missiles.

Fazlullah is the leader of Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan said to be responsible for numerous terrorist acts against Pakistani and USA interests including a failed attempt to detonate an explosive device in New York's Times Square in 2010.

The bomber came as close to the gathering as he could and detonated his explosives at the checkpoint outside, the spokesperson said.

The event was attended by some of the country's top politicians, including Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah and his deputy Mohammad Mohaqiq, a senior Hazara figure.

Among the dead were two policemen, he said. 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.

On Thursday night, Taliban fighters attacked a joint army and police outpost in the northern province of Takhar, killing seven soldiers and 10 policemen, according to Khalil Aseer, a provincial police spokesman.

Members of the local police who were sent to assist the soldiers were ambushed by the Taliban while on their way to the outpost in the remote district of Khwaja Ghar. He claimed the Taliban had inflicted a far higher number of casualties but the insurgents often exaggerate their claims. The group said it targeted a gathering of Shiites as they were commemorating the death of a "tyrant", an apparent reference to Mazari.
