At least 18 people killed in bomb attack in Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province

 At least 18 people have lost their lives after a terror blast hit funeral mourners in Afghanistan’s eastern province of Nangarhar, local officials say.
The deadly explosion occurred when a terrorist detonated an explosive vest amid mourners, who had attended a funeral in Behsud district of the provincial capital of Jalalabad on Sunday, said Nangarhar governor spokesman Attaullah Khogyani, adding that the blast also wounded at least 14 others.
All the casualties have been announced to be civilians, who had gathered for the funeral of a former district governor at a cemetery in the city.
 There was no immediate claim of responsibility but the Taliban militant group and the Daesh Takfiri terrorist outfit have increased attacks in recent months, with ordinary Afghans bearing the brunt of the violence.
