Islamic State claims responsibility for Afghanistan blast
The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a Saturday attack in Afghanistan's Balkh province, the group's telegram account said on Sunday.
The blast at a cultural centre during an event for journalists in northern Afghanistan killed at least one person and wounded eight, according to authorities and journalists.
The incident came a few days after the province's governor died in an explosion also claimed by Islamic State.
