JALALABAD (Pajhwok): A human rights official at the police headquarters in eastern Nangarhar province survived a bomb attack on Saturday, but his driver and a bodyguard were wounded.

The governor’s spokesman, Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, told Pajhwok Afghan News the bomb hit the pick-up of Abdul Mohammad Kamawal, human rights director at the police headquarters.

He said the explosion occurred close to the provincial council office in Jalalabad at around 11am. Kamawal escaped unhurt in the attack but his driver and bodyguard were injured.

A resident of the area, Khalid Muslim, confirmed the incident and said that civilians did not suffer casualties. “The driver has suffered serious injuries to his head,” he added.

Hamid, introducing himself as Daesh or so-called Islamic State (IS) spokesman, claimed responsibility for the bombing but had no exact information about the casualties inflicted by the Afghan security personnel.
