least 2 people have been killed and 12 others wounded in Afghanistan after a car bombing and battle in Jalalabad targeted the Save the Children charity on Wednesday. That's according to the provincial government, who says the attackers then clashed with security forces. Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack.
In a statement, Save The Children said they were devastated and that their primary concern was the safety and security of their staff. There are several other aid groups and government offices in the immediate area. Last year the Red Cross announced it was reducing its own operations in the country following attacks that killed seven of their staff.
Jalalabad is a capital of Nangarhar province, a stronghold for Islamic State and the Taliban. Wednesday's attack came just days after Taliban militants killed at least 20 people in Kabul's Hotel Intercontinental.
