18 Apr 2015 20:08
The self-style Islamic State group has claimed to have carried out a suicide bomb attack in eastern Afghanistan that killed at least 33 people and injured more than 100.
-
Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said the group claimed responsibility for the bombing.
-
If verified, this would be the first major attack claimed by the jihadist group in the country.
-
A person purporting to be an IS militant spokesman said that the group claimed responsibility for the bombing outside a bank in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad, where government workers were collecting their salaries.
-
An online posting allegedly from the group made the same claim, which could not be immediately verified.
-
The UN gave a higher toll, saying 35 people had been killed.
-
President Ghani strongly condemned the attack, which saw children among those killed, his office said in a statement.
