Deadly Afghan Blast Denounced

In a statement on Sunday, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Marzieh Afkham denounced a deadly blast in eastern Afghanistan as an “inhumane” and “unIslamic” action, saying terrorism, extremism and endangering the lives of innocent people are “unjustifiable” and “unacceptable”.
A suicide bomber in Afghanistan’s eastern city of Jalalabad killed 33 people and injured more than 100 on Saturday, setting off a blast outside a bank where government workers collect salaries, Reuters reported.
Afghan President Ashraf Ghani blamed Islamic State (IS) militants, without giving further detail.
Afkham extended condolences to the Afghan people and government and the families of victims.
In addition, she underlined the need for international cooperation in the campaign against terrorism and extremism and called for promotion of “cohesion” and “unity” among ethnic groups to help curb violence, according to a foreign ministry press release.
