The escalating violence has dampened hopes of peace talks to end Afghanistan's 17-year conflict but two Taliban officials on Tuesday told Reuters the movement was preparing for another meeting with United States officials following one in July.

The death toll from a suicide bomb attack on a protest gathering in eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday has gone up to 68 and with another 165 wounded, the number of dead could rise further, according to a government official.

A suicide bomber on Tuesday targeted a protest in Mohmand Dara district in Nangarhar province.

Protesters from the Nangarhar province's Achin district had gathered to call for the removal of a local police commander.

Khogyani said, a suicide bomber approached the crowded tent where the protesters had gathered and detonated his explosive vest.

Officials have warned violence is likely to intensify ahead of parliamentary elections next month and a presidential election in April.

The first explosion happened in front of Malika Omaira girls' school in Jalalabad, the capital of Nangarhar province, at around 8:30 am (0400 GMT), provincial governor spokesman Ataullah Khogyani told AFP.
