Bombing at Afghan Cricket Match

At least eight people were killed in a series of bomb explosions at a cricket match in Afghanistan’s eastern Nangarhar Province, a provincial official said.  The attack took place as hundreds of people gathered at Spinghar cricket stadium in the provincial capital Jalalabad to watch a Ramadan night-time cricket tournament on Friday. Three bombs exploded in quick succession, Aljazeera reported. Attahullah Khogyani, spokesman for the provincial governor, said at least 45 others were wounded in the blasts, adding that the organizer of the cricket match, Hedayatullah Zahir was also among the dead. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani strongly condemned the attack. “The terrorists did not stop killing our people even during the holy month of Ramadan ... by carrying out a terrorist attack in a populated sport stadium, once again they have proved that they are not bound to any creed or religion, and they are the enemy of humanity.” No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. The Taliban sent out a statement to Aljazeera saying they were not involved in the attack.
