MOSCOW (Sputnik) — At least two people were killed in an explosion near the residence of an Afghan parliamentarian in the country's eastern Nangarhar province on Wednesday, media reported, citing local authorities.
The nearby area has been cordoned off, the broadcaster said.
The incident took place a day after a blast occurred near the US embassy in the Kabul's diplomatic quarter, killing at least five people. The Taliban terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
Previously the Taliban vowed to continue 'jihad' as a response to the new US strategy in Afghanistan, which has been also widely criticized by the country's former president Hamid Karzai. He noted that the Trump's decision might lead to more bloodshed.
