KABUL, Afghanistan — A bomb placed in a mosque that detonated during morning prayers today killed the governor of eastern Logar province, Afghan officials said.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the assassination of the governor, Arsallah Jamal, but suspicion fell on the Taliban. The group has been targeting Afghan officials, police, military and NATO troops in the run up to late 2014, when foreign combat troops are scheduled to leave the country.
