Suicide Bomber Killed 5 and 40 Wounded at Wedding Party in Eastern Afghanistan,

On Friday, A walking suicide bomber went to a wedding in Afghanistan’s eastern province of Nangarhar, killing at least five people and injuring 40 others, local officials said.

Atahullah Khogyani, a spokesman for Nangarhar province’s governor, said a boy set off his explosives inside the house of a pro-government militia commander in Pacheragam district.

Khogyani said 40 wounded men and women were rushed to hospital and local residents said 10 people were killed.

Pro-government militias often work with overstretched Afghan security forces to prevent territories falling into the hands of the Taliban and Islamic State fighters.

Last month, Taliban militants killed at least 26 members of a pro-government militia in northern Afghanistan.

No group has claimed responsibility for the wedding party attack but Islamic State militants have carried a string of suicide bombings and attacks on government offices, schools, and aid groups in recent years in Jalalabad, Nangarhar’s main city.
