Who: A child suicide bomber who has not yet been identified killed Malik Toor, a “commander of a pro-government militia who had organized the wedding” according to The New York Post. 

What: The child was reportedly targeting Noor when he blew himself up at the wedding.

Where: The Pachirwa Agham district of Nangarhar province, in Eastern Afghanistan.
