At least 15 people died and 14 were hurt when a suicide attacker blew himself up at a funeral in Jalalabad city of Afghanistan on Sunday, Tolo News reported.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

Attaullah Khogyani, spokesman for the provincial governor, said the blast took place when people had gathered for the funeral of a former district governor, Reuters reported.

The explosion comes three days after a suicide attack at a cultural and religious centre in western Kabul on Thursday, which killed at least 41 people and injured more than 80. The Islamic State had claimed responsibility for the attack.
