JALALABAD (PANinfo-icon): The appellant prosecutor of eastern Nangarhar province escaped unhurt in a militant attack that wounded four of his bodyguards on Saturday, officials said.

The morning attack occurred in the Sra Qala area of Chaparhar district when he was travelling from Pachir Agam district to Jalalabad city, the appellant attorney said.
