Islamic State claims responsibility for attack in Afghanistan: AMAQ

CAIRO (Reuters) - Islamic State has claimed responsibility for an attack on a government building in Afghanistan on Sunday, the Islamist militant group’s Amaq news agency said without providing any evidence.

Afghan security forces battled for hours against a group of attackers who stormed a government building in the eastern city of Jalalabad after a coordinated assault that killed at least 15 people and wounded 42, local officials said.
