KABUL, Afghanistan: The number of militants killed in an attack by the largest non-nuclear weapon ever used in combat by the US military has risen to 94, an Afghan official said Saturday.
Ataullah Khogyani, spokesman for the provincial governor in Nangarhar, said the number of Daesh group dead was up from the 36 reported a day earlier. A Ministry of Defense official had said Friday the number of dead could rise as officials assessed the bomb site in Achin district.
“Fortunately there is no report of civilians being killed in the attack,” Khogyani said.
The US attack on a tunnel complex in remote eastern Nangarhar province near the Pakistan border killed at least four Daesh group leaders, Khogyani said. He said a clearance operation to assess the site of the attack was continuing.

  1. It is anyway suspicious how they always come up with exact numbers. How did they know there were initially 36 casualties? Do they have so good ‘assets’ on the ground? It seems to me they just make up numbers for the benefit of the (hated) media. – Anyway, the important question is: ‘how was the chocolate cake’?
