Olive harvesters survive twin blasts in Nangarhar

Oct 28, 2017 - 15:57

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Canalization department workers collecting olive harvest survived two consecutive bomb blasts in Farm Hada area of eastern Nangarhar province on Saturday.

The blasts took place in the third block of olive orchards at about 12:40pm, said the governor’s spokesman, Attaullah Khogyani.

He said no one suffered casualties in the blasts and another two landmines were detected and defused in the same area.

A worker of the canalization department, Abdul Qayum Atrafi, told Pajhwok Afghan News four landmines had been planted in the orchards, two of them were exploded and the other two defused.

He said police had reached the area and that there were no casualties in the blasts.

Amid dearth of workers, the canal department started harvesting olives from its orchards a few days ago, with officials predicting 1200 tons of yield this season.
