Earlier this week a 23-year-old Afghan army soldier tried to thwart a suicide attack in eastern Nangarhar province by throwing himself at the bomber just before the attacker triggered a blast. The soldier, Mohammad Omar, spotted the bomber in a crowded market, clinched him and pushed him away from before the bomber detonated his explosives, killing Omar and three other people. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. VOA’s Zabihullah Ghazi reports from Nangarhar.
