JALALABAD, Sept 12: The death toll from a suicide attack on Afghan protesters has soared to 68, officials said on Wednesday, as violence flares across the country ahead of elections and a key Islamic holy day. The bombing on Tuesday in the eastern province of Nangarhar was the latest in a wave of deadly insurgent attacks which has claimed the lives of hundreds of civilians and security forces across Afghanistan. The blast wounded another 165 people. There has been no claim of responsibility, but the Islamic State group, which has carried out most of the recent suicide bombings in Afghanistan, is active in the province.    -AFP
