At least two civilians were killed in a bomb attack targeting a Taliban vehicle in Afghanistan's eastern city of Jalalabad on Sunday, according to hospital sources.

The Jalalabad hospital confirmed the casualties after the explosion in the fifth region of the city.

Meanwhile, eyewitnesses said at least five people including some Taliban members were injured in the attack.

So far, there has been no claim of responsibility for the attack in Jalalabad, marred by pro-Daesh/ISIS militancy.
