Gunmen set off explosives before opening fire on a provincial office of the aid group Save the Children in Afghanistan, killing at least one person and wounding more than a dozen others, local officials say.

At least 14 people were hurt in the attack Wednesday in Jalalabad and had been evacuated to the Nangarhar regional hospital; however, the number of casualties could rise as the gun battle with assailants continued, hospital spokesman Inamullah Miakhial said.
