Twin bombs in Jalalabad kill two civilians

Two bombs exploded on Saturday in eastern Jalalabad province, striking a Taliban vehicle, and killing one child.

A roadside bombing targeting a Taliban vehicle in eastern Afghanistan has killed at least two civilians, including a child, and wounded four others, said district police chief Ismatullah Mubariz said on Saturday.

No Taliban members were harmed, he said.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but the Daesh group is active in eastern Nangarhar province, where it has launched frequent attacks targeting the Taliban.

A local hospital official said two bodies and four wounded civilians were transferred to the hospital after the attack.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.

Recently, Daesh has shown signs of expansion in Afghanistan, with attacks in the north, the south and the capital of Kabul. 

The group’s ability to launch frequent attacks has cast doubt over the Taliban’s ability to maintain security and stability in the embattled country.
