KABUL (Reuters) - An explosion outside the governor's office in the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar killed 10 people on Sunday and wounded 30, a security official said. No one immediately claimed responsibility.

A car bomb killed 36 people in Nangarhar on Saturday, an attack claimed by Islamic State.

The Afghan Taliban separately ruled out an extension to their unprecedented three-day Eid ceasefire which ends on Sunday night.
