A bomb blast has murdered and injured several people in the northern province of Jawzjan, Afghanistan,  according to media sources.

The incident took place in a wedding hall in the province's city of Aqcha, an information security source in Afghanistan said.

One person had been killed and five others had been injured.

Meanwhile, in Jalalabad, east Afghanistan, four people, two of them Taliban activists have been killed in an attack by unidentifiable gunmen.

No inpidual or group has been held responsible for these attacks to date.

It is worth noting that Former President Ashraf Ghani said Monday his Facebook account was hacked when it posted a message telling people to accept the Taliban rule.

A post was shared on Ghani’s verified Facebook page at 12:15 p.m. on Monday, which said the world should engage with the Taliban government.

“The international community should interact with the current government instead of alienating the Afghan people,” it said.

“The world must understand that if Afghanistan wants a prosperous and secure Afghanistan, it must extend a hand of friendship. It cannot be influenced by hostility as it has experienced in the last twenty years.”

However, 30 minutes after the Facebook post was published, Ghani’s verified Twitter account said his Facebook account had been hacked, noting that anything published from Sunday onwards was “no longer valid.”

The former president had fled Afghanistan for the UAE on August 15, the day the Taliban took control over Kabul, claiming that he did it to try and avoid bloodshed.

“Leaving Kabul was the most difficult decision of my life, but I believed it was the only way to keep the guns silent and save Kabul and her 6 million citizens,” he clarified.
