JALALABAD (PANinfo-icon): Eight civilians were injured when a bomb-rigged motorcycle went off in Jalalabad city, the capital of eastern Nangarhar province, late on Wednesday, an official said.

The blast took place near two plazas – Ghaljai and Ishaqzai – in the heart of the city at 7pm, the governor's spokesman, Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
