Afghanistan attack: Nangarhar suicide blast toll soars

Afghan suicide bombing kills 68 in deadly month for attacks

Afghan policemen arrive at the site of a suicide bomb attack in Kabul, Afghanistan on August 15, 2018.

The escalating violence has dampened hopes of peace talks to end Afghanistan's 17-year conflict but two Taliban officials on Tuesday told Reuters the movement was preparing for another meeting with USA officials following one in July.

Gen. Ghulam Sanayee Stanikzai, police chief of Nangarhar province, said people from Achin district had come to the Momandara district to block the main highway between the capital Jalalabad and the Torkham border with Pakistan.

There has been no claim of responsibility for the massacre, but the Islamic State group, which has carried out most of the recent suicide bombings in Afghanistan, is active in the province.

NHL Rumors: Senators Trade Erik Karlsson To San Jose Sharks
Karlsson, 28, has one year left on his contract and has been the subject of rumors dating to the trade deadline. The 19-year old Norris was drafted 19th overall in the first round of the 2017 draft by the Sharks.

The peaceful protesters accused a local police officer of misusing power, calling upon the government to sack and punish him when the blast happened, the official added.

The intensified fighting has also fuelled speculation over whether Afghanistan's long-delayed parliamentary elections will go ahead on October 20.

Baqizoy compared the threat to the Taliban's extraordinary raid last month on the provincial capital of Ghazni - fighters held large parts of the city located just two hours from Kabul for days.

Tuesday's attack was marked by one of the highest death tolls in attacks in Afghanistan this year.

A suicide bomber attacked a protest in the district Mohmand Gift.

The explosion at the protest followed a series of smaller blasts on Tuesday that targeted schools in Jalalabad and surrounding districts, killing at least one person and wounding three.

"These are the final figures and the number of casualties increased after we collected the data from all hospitals in Jalalabad city and hospitals in districts particularly in areas near to the site of the blasts", provincial governor's spokesperson Attaullah Khogyanai told Efe news. A boy was killed and four others wounded in a double bombing outside a girls' school in restive eastern Afghanistan on September 11, officials and witnesses said, in the latest violence to hit the country.
