KABUL — Gunmen opened fire on Shiite worshipers at a shrine in the Afghan capital Tuesday, killing at least 14 people and wounding more than 40 others during events marking one of the holiest days for Shiite Muslims, authorities reported.

Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry, which issued the death toll, gave few immediate details about how the attack unfolded. But the ministry’s spokesman, Sediq Siddiqui, said “the last attacker has been gunned down” by about 9:30 p.m. and described the situation as “under control.”
Earlier, police officials said that one attacker had taken an unknown number of hostages but that security forces had evacuated most people from the Sakhi shrine. The domed hillside sanctuary is one of the most popular places for Shiites to gather on holidays, and the surrounding area was filled with people.
At least 43 people were wounded, the Health Ministry reported.
Police said that at least three attackers were involved, wearing police or military uniforms, and that they may have set off explosions before the gunfire. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
A video posted on social media showed the shrine’s massive tiled dome illuminated by bursts of gunfire, with sounds of screams and wailing in the background.
