KABUL — A suicide bomber killed at least 48 people in the Afghan capital on Tuesday after detonating explosives outside a packed Shiite mosque as throngs of worshipers observed a religious holiday, police and a government official said.

The noontime explosion outside a prominent shrine in the Murad Khani district of Kabul was a rare attack in a city where insurgents have in recent months targeted mainly Western installations and military personnel.

It was among the deadliest attacks targeting civilians in the decade-long war, and the first major attack on Shiites in Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban. More than 100 people were injured.
