AFGHANISTAN (OBSERVATORY) – A gunbattle raged between Afghan security forces and militants following a series of explosions on Sunday in the eastern city of Jalalabad, a government official said as cited by Reuters news agency.

At least three explosions were heard at the start of what appeared to be a coordinated attack, Attahullah Khogyani, a spokesman for the Nangarhar provincial governor said.
