An explosive device has disrupted a funeral service for 25 members of Afghanistan's Sikh minority community.

No one was hurt by the blast Thursday. Frightened mourners struggled to continue with the funeral prayers and cremation.

The 25 Sikhs had been killed Wednesday by a lone Islamic State gunman, rampaged through a Sikh house of worship in the heart of Kabul's old city.

A 6 year old child was among the victims.
