Suicide attack kills over 30

18 Apr, 2015







A suicide bomb attack on a bank branch in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad kills at least 30 people. More than 80 people wounded in the attack. The attacker detonated an explosive-laden motorcycle, targeting a crowd of both military personnel and civilians who were gathered outside the bank to receive their monthly salaries. The bank branch is located in the heart of a crowded commercial district.

Another blast was reported near a shrine in Jalalabad, but no one was hurt. A third blast was also heard in Jalalabad, but it was later reported as a controlled explosion by the Afghan army in Nangarhar. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
