Nangarhar provincial spokesman Attaullah Khogyani said three blasts rocked the city centre, and had taken place near an armoured police vehicle.

“The nature of explosions is not clear, but it could be IEDs,” Khogyani said, using the acronym for improvised explosive devices.

“So far we can confirm three people have been killed and 20 wounded.”

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but the area around Jalalabad is home to fighters from both the Taliban and the Daesh´s Afghan affiliate.
