Afghanistan: Deadly Taliban attack on military compound.
A Taliban attack on a military compound in central Afghanistan has killed at least 20 security personnel and injured many more, local officials say.
Militants rammed a vehicle laden with explosives through a military checkpoint in Wardak province, before detonating it.
Some media reports put the death toll much higher.
The Taliban’s power and reach has surged since foreign combat troops left Afghanistan in 2014.
That year US-led combat operations against the Taliban, the main insurgent group in Afghanistan, officially ended, but some American troops remain in the country to provide training and assistance to Afghan forces, which do most of the fighting.
