New Delhi: At least six security force members were killed in an explosion in Saydarak area on the outskirts of Kunduz city in Afghanistan on Monday.
A local media reported that the suicide bombing comes after the Afghan government claimed security after Taliban’s attempt at capturing the region on Sunday. However, no group has taken responsibility for the attack.
The city has been a battleground since Taliban launched a multi-fronted attack on Saturday in its bid to take over Kunduz, to mark its comeback in Afghanistan. More than 10 people had been killed in Sunday’s attack.
Although the Afghan government authorities have stated that the attack has been repelled, reports claim otherwise. Some reports also suggest that if the ongoing battle does not subside by tonight, the Taliban might be able to seize the city.
This is breaking news, more details awaited.
