Bomb explosion kills 50 people in Afghanistan, say TV channels

Afghanistan suicide bomber kills at least 32 injures 120- official

The incident, the fourth attack to hit the region on Tuesday, took place around 1 p.m, when an insurgent detonated a bomb he was carrying in his vest in the Momand Darah district, said Attaullah Khogyanai, a spokesperson for the province's governor.

A suicide bomber on Tuesday targeted a protest in Mohmand Dara district in Nangarhar province.

According to a united Nations report published in mid-July, the number of civilians killed in Afghanistan in the first six months of the year reached a record high of almost 1,700 dead, due in majority to the attacks of the AES, the worst record in ten years, according to the UN.

No any other group immediately claimed responsibility but both Taliban insurgents and the Islamic State are active in eastern Afghanistan, especially in Nangarhar province. The Taliban denied involvement. Sohrab Qaderi, a member of the local provincial council, said at least 45 dead and wounded had been taken to local hospitals but added that the toll could rise.

Baqizoy compared the threat to the Taliban's extraordinary raid last month on the provincial capital of Ghazni - fighters held large parts of the city located just two hours from Kabul for days. That higher death toll was not confirmed.

The explosion at the protest followed a series of smaller blasts on Tuesday that targeted schools in Jalalabad and surrounding districts that were returning after summer breaks.

Reports earlier on Tuesday spoke about a chain of explosions near three schools in Nangarhar.

In addition, two air strikes were carried out in Baghlan, another northern province on Tuesday, following six the day before and US advisers were on the ground supporting Afghan troops, the spokesman added.

Also in Nangarhar, at least one person was killed and four others wounded in a series of additional bomb blasts near different schools, said Khogyani.
