In Afghanistan, at least eight civilians were killed, and 42 more were wounded, in an attack on a government building in the eastern province of Nangarhar. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack. This comes as Taliban militants have killed more than 100 Afghan soldiers and police officers over the last week alone, as part of the Taliban’s spring offensive. A recently issued U.S. government report says the Afghan army has shrunk by 11 percent over the last year and that insurgent groups have gained territory.
