Islamic State has claimed responsibility for an attack that hit Afghanistan's eastern city of Jalalabad on Wednesday (January 24), according to the militant group's news agency Amaq, though it did not provide immediate evidence for the claim. Gunmen stormed an office of aid agency Save the Children and battled security forces surrounding the building, killing at least two people and wounding 12, officials said.
