Suicide Bomber Kills at Least 32 at East Afghanistan Protest

•, by Jason Ditz

An apparent ISIS attack against a public protest in the Nangarhar Province has killed at least 32 civilians and wounded 128 others. Several blasts were reported, with the deadliest involving a suicide bomber detonating in the crowd of people.

Locals were protesting about a local police commander at the time of the attack. The Taliban quickly denounced the incident and denied involvement. ISIS has not formally taken credit, but they have carried out numerous attacks in Nangarhar in recent weeks.
