Attackers detonated car bomb inside complex in Maidan Wardak province, say officials
The Taliban have killed more than 100 Afghan security personnel at a military compound in central Maidan Wardak province, a senior defence official has said.
“We have information that 126 people have been killed in the explosion inside the military training centre. Eight special commandos are among the dead,” said a senior official in the defence ministry in Kabul, speaking on condition of anonymity.
The official said the assault began on Monday morning, when the attackers drove a car full of explosives through a military checkpoint and detonated the vehicle inside the campus of the National Directorate of Security (NDS) training centre in Maidan Shahr, the provincial capital.
