Nangarhar: On Friday, a suicide bomber carried on an attack at a wedding ceremony at the eastern province of Nangarhar, Afghanistan.
The attack caused the death of at least five people and leaving 40 people injured. The number of casualties keeps increasing, mentioned a report by Tolo News.
The attacker is believed to be a minor in his early teens. The Taliban, who has pledged to try to reduce civilian casualties, denied responsibility for the attack.

ISIL claimed responsibility for that attack.
Further details regarding the attack are awaited.
