IED explosion kills 1 child in Afghanistan


In Afghanistan ,at least one child was killed and seven other civilians were wounded in an IED explosion in Jalalabad city, Nangarhar province today.

The provincial governor's spokesman said that the explosion happened close to a shop in a busy market.

So far no group has claimed responsibility for the incident.

Meanwhile ,the Taliban's leader Mullah Hebatullah Akhundzada called on the US to hold direct talks with the group and said if US officials believe in a peaceful resolution, then they must resolve the crisis through dialogue.

Deputy Assistant to US President Donald Trump and Senior Director for Central Asia at the National Security Council, Lisa Curtis, said US cannot act on behalf of Afghan officials in the peace talks with the Taliban, but they want to participate in the talks.

After Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's announcement, the Taliban also responded and announced a three-day ceasefire, over Eid, on their part. However, this did not include foreign forces.
