Afghan forces have retaken control of a prison in eastern Afghanistan, a day after it came under an attack by ISIS militants.
A suicide bomber drove a car loaded with bombs into the prison’s main gate, exploding it. ISIS fighters moved in through the gap, firing on prison guards.
Attaullah Khogyani, the provincial governor’s spokesman, told The Associated Press that 29 people had died, including civilians, prisoners, guards and Afghan forces. Another 50 or more people were wounded, Afghan Defense Ministry spokesman Fawad Aman told Reuters.
