3 injured in blast outside Pak Consulate General in Jalalabad

Islamabad: Pakistan has said that at least three persons, including a policeman, were injured in a blast outside its Consulate General in the volatile Jalalabad city in Afghanistan.

Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal said an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) exploded outside the consulate in Jalalabad.

"IED exploded outside holding area of our Consulate General in Jalalabad. All Pakistani staff are safe. One policeman and two applicants are reportedly wounded," he said in a tweet.

"We are in contact with Afghan authorities to ensure strengthened security for Consulate General's premises and personnel," Faisal said.

No outfit has taken responsibility of the attack.

The consulate had been shut down in August last year, before resuming operations two months later, a media report said.
