Blast strikes non-governmental agency in Nangarhar, killing 3

Attaullah Khogyani, the provincial governor’s spokesman, told ZamanNews that the blast targeted People’s Protection Office, which is working for people’s welfare in Khogyani district of the volatile province.

Three staffers of the public-utility organization were killed and six others were wounded, he said.
