In the town of Jawala, a roadside bomb targeting the convoy of the deputy minister detonated and killed 5 people. The minister was not harmed. No one knows why the bombing occured, but it could be caused due to the mixed ethnicities of the town. The tension is probably high because of the mixed ethnicities, and the bombing occured.
