Kabul [Afghanistan], June 1 (ANI): At least one security personal was killed and three civilians injured during a suicide car bomb explosion in Afghanistan's eastern Nangarhar province. According to Khaama Press, the Nangarhar Government media office confirmed the attack that took place close to the airbase in Behsud district. According to the officials, the health condition of the injured civilians is satisfactory. So far, no group, including the Islamic State or the Taliban have claimed responsibility to the attack so far. No group including the Taliban insurgents or ISIS loyalists has so far claimed responsibility for the incident. Nangarhar is among the relatively calm provinces in eastern Afghanistan, but the anti-government armed militant groups have recently increased their insurgency activities in some parts of the province during the recent years. Both the Taliban insurgents and ISIS loyalists are active in this province and often carry out insurgency activities. The latest attack comes a day after an explosion rocked the Kabul truck bomb claiming more than 90 lives. TOLO news quoting sources said that a truck that used to empty sewerage tanks had been loaded with 1,500 kilograms of explosives. The incident occurred yesterday in front of the German Embassy and Roshan telecommunications company in Kabul. (ANI)
