Officials said Toor was the likely target of the attack, which took place in Pachirwa Agham district of Nangarhar province.

The incident happened in the morning when a crowd was attending a wedding ceremony at the house of a pro-government militia commander, Malik Toor in Pachir Agam district, provincial government spokesman Ataullah Khogyani told Xinhua.

The Islamic Convey (IS) team in Afghanistan, generally acknowledged as IS Khorasan, is acknowledged to be active in Pachiragam.


No one took responsibility for the attack.

Khogyani said the dead included Tor's two sons, a child, and five other civilians.

The explosion comes just days after historic talks between Afghan representatives and the Taliban wrapped up as part of a US-led effort to end the war.


The 2 aspects agreed on a "roadmap to peace" seen as having laid the bottom for formal talks in the raze. They hope to set an settlement that might well look USA troops pull out in return for a commitment that Afghanistan would now not be feeble as a spoiled for terrorism.

Local media reported that the bombing attack might have been perpetrated by a minor.

In Indonesia a year ago, two girls aged 9 and 12 were among those used to attack a church in Surabaya.
