At least 15 people were confirmed dead as a suicide bomber targeted a protest demonstration in the eastern Nangarhar province on Tuesday, an eyewitness said.

"We have counted 15 dead bodies laying on the ground after a suicide bomber blew himself up among protestors on Jalalabad-Torkham road in Nangarhar province," the eyewitness told Xinhua but refused to be identified.

He also asserted that the number of casualties might be higher as the blast was very powerful.

Meantime, provincial government spokesman Attaullah Khogiani confirmed the incident but failed to provide details, saying it is too early to reveal the details on casualties or kind of attack.
