A deadly bomb attack has hit Afghanistan’s eastern city of Jalalabad, killing at least 16 people.

Local officials said on Wednesday that two attackers detonated explosives near the office of a construction company in the vicinity of the airport in Jalalabad, in Afghanistan’s eastern Nangarhar Province.

Sixteen members of the firm were reportedly killed in the attack.

“Two attackers detonated their vests, and two more were gunned down by security forces,” said Attaullah Khogyani, a spokesman for Nangarhar’s governor.

He said clearance operations at the scene still continued.

It was unclear how many people were injured.

There has been no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. But the Taliban militant group has been active in the province. The Daesh terrorist group is also present in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, Taliban representatives are involved in peace talks with the United States in Doha, Qatar.

US State Department spokesman Robert Palladino told a news briefing on Tuesday that the peace talks were making progress but more work was needed to clinch a deal.

Despite a two-day break before the weekend, negotiations continue on “a daily basis right now and progress is being made,” Palladino said.

A spokesman for the Taliban spokesman said on Thursday that the two sides had decided to adjourn the peace talks in order to hold consultations and prepare for their next session.
