Deadly suicide attack foiled in Ja

AVA- The provincial government media office in a statement said a suicide bombing vest packed with massive explosives and ball bearings was confiscated from a shop in Khogyani district.

The statement further added that the Taliban insurgents were looking to use the suicide bombing to carry out an attack in Jalalabad city.

According to the governor’s office, the suicide bombing vest was recovered from a shop and at least one person has also been arrested in connection to the bombing plot.

The anti-government armed militant groups including the Taliban insurgents have not commented regarding the report so far.

Nangarhar is among the relatively calm provinces in East of Afghanistan but the anti-government armed militant groups including the Taliban and ISIS insurgents have started insurgency activities in some remote parts of the province.

The militants are attempting to carry out terrorist related activities in the key cities and provinces of the country as the security forces have stepped up counter-terrorism operations across the country.
