Afghan official: Attackers in east storm building, kill 10
Two suicide bombers stormed an education department building in Afghanistan’s eastern Nangarhar province Wednesday, killing at least 10 people, a provincial official said.
Gen. Ghulam Sanayee Stanekzai, Nangarhar provincial police chief, said one of the attackers detonated a vest full of explosives and a second was shot and killed by security forces.
Eight others were wounded in the attack in Jalalabad, Stanekzai said. “A few offices and rooms in the building were burned down as a result of the attack,” he said.
Attahullah Khogyani, spokesman for the provincial governor, said by early afternoon the fighting was over.
