JALALABAD (PANinfo-icon): A mine-making expert was killed and his companion injured as a result of a blast caused by their own explosives in the Khogyani district of eastern Nangarhar province on Sunday, police said

The two were making bombs in a graveyard near the Kagi bazaar area when the blast took place, deputy provincial police chief Col. Masoom Khan Hashmi told Pajhwok Afghan News.
