198 Days ago

Jalalabad (Afghanistan), Jan 13 At least two police personnel were killed in an explosion near foreign consulate buildings in eastern Afghanistan's Jalalabad town on Wednesday, sources and witnesses said.

"The bomb attack targeted a police vehicle near the Pakistani consulate office, killing two police officers. So far, we have no more details, but we will try to get more information," a security source told Xinhua news agency.

A private high school and several other diplomatic mission offices, including Indian and Iranian consulate buildings, are also located in the area.

Two persons were injured in the blast that took place at around 9 a.m. (local time) in the city, which is capital of eastern Nangarhar province, he said.

Government troops cordoned off the area after the blast, fearing a second blast. Several warning shots were also fired by the security forces.

Further details about the incident are yet to come in the absence of an official statement.

So far, no one has claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Taliban militant group have launched similar attacks in the country recently. (IANS)
