Journalists for Ariana TV, Hevad, Zhwandoon TV, as well as a freelance reporter for the AFP new agency have been injured in a clash with security officers while trying to cover the aftermath of the double attack in Jalalabad.

The journalists said they would submit a complaint to the province’s governor.

At least 3 people were killed in two suicide car bombings in eastern Afghanistan on Sunday morning.

 


Two would-be suicide bombers shot dead in Kabul embassy area

Afghan security forces Sunday shot dead two suspected suicide bombers in a car near a construction site in Kabul's diplomatic enclave, a police official and an AFP photographer said.

The men were killed in their car in Wazir Akbar Khan, where most foreign embassies are located, a police official said, asking not to be identified by name because he was not authorised to speak to the media.

An AFP photographer at the scene said an abandoned SUV with two men who appeared dead could be seen on the road, which had been sealed off by security forces.

 


Two suicide bombings in Afghanistan kill three

Two suicide car bombings in eastern Afghanistan on Sunday killed two intelligence agents and a police officer, officials said.

In the first attack, a suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden car into a spy agency facility in the eastern town of Jalalabad, 150 kilometres (90 miles) east of Kabul.

It was followed by a similar attack on a police base in Logar, 70 kilometres south of the capital, officials said.

The attacks together killed two intelligence agents and a police officer, officials said.
