Bomb Kills Afghan Provincial Governor

In the highest profile assassination in months, Afghanistan’s provincial governor Arsallah Jamal was killed in a mosque bombing on Tuesday. He was in the middle of a speech at the main mosque in Puli Alam to mark the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha when the bomb went off, killing him and injuring 15 others. No group has claimed responsibility for the bombing.
