Kabul (Web Desk): At least two people were killed and several others injured in separate explosions on Saturday in Jalalabid city of Afghanistan at least one of which targeted a Taliban vehicle.
According to a foreign media outlet, pictures taken at the site of the blast showed a green pick-up truck with a white Taliban flag surrounded by debris as armed fighters looked on.
"In one attack a Taliban vehicle patrolling in Jalalabad was targeted," a Taliban official who asked not to be named told the media outlet.
"Women and children were among the injured," he added.
An official from the health department of Nangarhar Province said that three people were killed and 18 were wounded, while several local media reported the attacks left at least two dead and 19 injured.
The attacks, which targeted Taliban vehicles, are the first deadly blasts since the American withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Jalalabad is the capital of Nangarhar, the heartland of Afghanistan's militant Islamic State group, which claimed responsibility for a bloody attack that killed more than 100 people at Kabul airport at the end of August.
The Afghan Taliban returned to power in mid-August after toppling the former government, and they have promised to restore peace and security to the country.
