3 killed in attack in Afghanistan's Nangarhar province, say officials
The second attacker was not able to detonate his explosives vest and was shot by security forces.
At least three people were killed after a suicide bomber detonated his explosives vest, paving the way for another attacker to charge into a training centre for midwives in the capital of Nangarhar province, a provincial official said today.
The battle between the attacker and security forces lasted almost six hours, added Khogyani, because "the forces had to rescue every individual from the building," No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but both Taliban insurgents and fighters from the local affiliate of the Islamic State group are active in eastern Afghanistan, especially in Nangarhar.
