Eight people were killed and 45 wounded in a series of explosions targeting a cricket match in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad, officials said today.
 
It is the first attack since the holy month of Ramadan began.
 
The blasts exploded among spectators crowded into the stadium at around 11 pm last evening as they watched the local “Ramadan Cup”, the provincial governor’s office said.
 
No group has yet claimed the murders but the Taliban said they were not responsible in a WhatsApp message.
 
Jalalabad, the capital of Nangarhar province, on the border with Pakistan, has a Taliban presence and is also a stronghold of the Islamic State group.
