Afghanistan: Bomb hits music shop

23 October 2007
A bomb exploded in a music shop in a small town in Eastern Afghanistan and hurt the shopkeeper, an official said to AFP

The official said that the attack on the music shop may have been carried out by Taliban extremists who say secular music is un-Islamic and corrupting.

Attacks from the Taliban are up this year by more than 20 percent, according to the United Nations.

The Taliban banned secular music among a host of measures imposed during their rule in Afghanistan which ended six years ago.
