Govt has ignored Jalalabad bank attack victims’ families

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): The bereaved families of those killed and wounded in a massive attack in April on a Kabul Bank branch in Jalalabad city, the capital of eastern Nangarhar province, say the government is yet to take notice of the situation they are in.

Bad economic situation, a lack of aid and no follow-ups of cases of the people detained in connection with the attack are among complaints the families carry.

A suicide bomber blew himself up in front of the Kabul Bank, leaving 35 people dead and more than 124 injured in Jalalabad City on April 18, 2015.

The attack also caused heavy financial losses to people, but the local government has not yet provided the exact amount of the losses.
