Child suicide bomber, 13, kills five and injures 40 more after blowing himself up at a wedding in Afghanistan


A 13-year-old suicide bomber killed at least five people and wounded 40 today on an attack at a wedding ceremony in eastern Afghanistan.

Neither the Taliban nor Islamic State claimed responsibility for this morning’s attack in Nangarhar, a volatile province on the border with Pakistan.

Among those killed was Malik Toor, a commander of a pro-government militia who had organised the wedding, police official Fayz Mohammad Babarkhil said. Officials said he was likely the target.
