Chapter 124:4
Laws Of Tish'ah B'av

4. A mourner may attend the synagogue services on Tish'ah B'av, in the evening and during the day until the "kinos" are completed (1). He is allowed to be called up to the Torah and to recite the Haftorah (2). [Although normally this would be forbidden,] on this day we are all mourners.

FOOTNOTES:

(1) Normally, a mourner may not leave his house during the first three days of mourning, even to go to the house of another mourner. There are authorities who rule that this prohibition applies even on Tish'ah B'av (and therefore, he may not attend synagogue at all). The Mishna Berura 559:24 cites Rav Shlomo Kruger's compromise ruling that on Tish'ah B'av, a mourner during the first three days may only attend synagogue during the day, when many kinos are recited (and he would be upset at missing the opportunity to recite them with the congregation), but not at night.

(2) Permission for a mourner to be called to the Torah or recite the Haftorah on Tish'ah B'av, is not mentioned explicitly in the Shulchan Aruch or Mishna Berura.
