At least 43 Afghan soldiers killed as Taliban storm military base
Tolo News channel said that two suicide bombers used Humvee vehicles to attack the base located in the Maiwand district.
Of 60 soldiers manning the base in the province of Kandahar, 43 were killed, nine were wounded and six were missing after the militants attacked in the middle of the night, the ministry said in a statement.
KANDAHAR, Afghanistan - An Afghan Army unit in the south of the country was nearly completely wiped out Thursday, defense officials said, in a Taliban attack that used what is becoming one of the group's deadliest tactics: packing vehicles captured from security forces with explosives and driving them into military and police compounds.
The attacks come two days after similar massive suicide vehicle bombings in Paktia and Ghazni provinces that killed over 70 people.
Some 10 Taliban fighters were also killed, Glasse adds.
Other insurgents then stormed the base - which resulted in a firefight between Taliban members and security forces.
Taliban fighters then assaulted the facility, setting off several hours of fighting that killed almost every Afghan soldier there and wounded nine. Meanwhile, over 200 others, including civilians, were wounded in the attack.
The brazen assault on Thursday began with two suicide auto bombings, setting off several hours of fighting.
The Afghan Defencee Ministry confirmed that at least 43 people had died.
Critics asked "how it is possible that so few people could besiege a military base and cause such a high casualty toll among security forces". As Tom reported, the Taliban "either control or exert influence in about 40 percent of Afghanistan, an area that is home to about a third of the population - 11 million people".
