A tanker caught fire after a magnetic bomb attached to it was detonated in the capital of Nangarhar Province late on Saturday afternoon, an official said.

The Provincial Governor spokesman Ataullah Khogyani told Ariana News that the incident took place in the PD7 area of Jalalabad City.

Khogyani said initial reports suggest that one person was wounded in the blast. He said the tanker was completely burned as a result of the fire.

There was no claim of responsibility for the explosion.

Nangarhar is among the most volatile provinces in east Afghanistan, where insurgent groups are actively operating in a number of its districts. Last week officials confirmed that Islamic State-Khorasan, also known as Daesh, has been eradicated in the province, following months of fighting.
