  • Suicide Bombers, Gunmen Attack Tax Office In Eastern Afghanistan

Militants attacked a provincial government building in eastern Afghanistan on Sunday, killing at least ten people, officials said.

At least eight people have been killed in a vehicle bomb explosion near a provincial government building in Afghanistan's eastern province of Nangarhar.

He said at least four attackers, armed with rocket-propelled grenades and machine guns, still appeared to be fighting police. The attackers then stormed the building, trading fire with security officials. "Some of my friends are still stuck there".

At least seven people, including an assailant, were killed and 20 others wounded after two blasts and ensuing gunshots rocked Jalalabad city on Sunday.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility of today's blasts.

Jalalabad is the capital of restive Nangarhar, which borders Pakistan. Both the Taliban and a local Islamic State affiliate have carried out numerous attacks in Nangarhar.

Khogyani further added that the attack was carried out a by group of eight militants with at least two of them detonating their explosives near the Customs Department at around 12:30 pm local time.

April saw a series of attacks across the country targeting voter registration centres as Afghanistan gears up for long-delayed legislative elections due in October.

Operation Al Khandaq will target United States forces and "their intelligence agents" as well as their "internal supporters", a Taliban statement said in late April.

Mr Qaderi's account of the attack also varied from Khugyani's. He informed up to 30 people were wounded in this ongoing assault.

Afghan security forces have struggled to combat the Taliban and IS since the US and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation formally concluded their combat role in the country in 2014, shifting to a support and counterterrorism mission.
