A suicide bomber detonated a bomb in eastern Afghanistan during the funeral service of a provincial governor. The governor was killed in another attack carried out by a suicide bomber the day before. Several people were injured in the blast, the AP says.
The blast went off near a tent in Tani district of Khost province at the funeral for Gov. Abdul Hakim Taniwal, who died with two others in a suicide attack outside his office in neighboring Paktia province on Sunday, said police official Ahmad Jan.
