More than 40 Afghan soldiers have been killed in an attack by the Taliban militant group in Afghanistan’s southern Kandahar province. 


The Taliban launched a major attack on an army base in southern Kandahar province, killing at least 43 Afghan soldiers.

The brazen assault on Thursday began with two suicide car bombings, setting off several hours of fighting.

There we only 60 soldiers manning the base, 43 were killed, nine wounded, and six missing after Taliban fighters stormed the camp in the middle of the night, the defence ministry said in a statement.

More details to follow.
