Taliban Attack Second Afghan Army Base in 3 Days, Killing Dozens

Mr Ghani said that in "this terrorist bombing once again, the terrorists martyred and wounded the innocent" - students attending a training class in a Shiite neighbourhood of Kabul.

Some bodies had been double-counted when they were being taken to hospital from the blast site following Wednesday's attack, the ministry said on Thursday.

On August, 3, a suicide bomber attacked a mosque in eastern Afghanistan during Friday prayers, killing 25 people and wounding 40, police said.

Two other soldiers were also wounded in the battle, he said.

He warned the toll could rise.

According to the coalition forces officials in Afghanistan, more than 220 militants were killed in the airstrikes conducted by the United States forces during the Taliban attack on Ghazni city.

Ghawari said there were at least 13 attacks on the Shi'ite community in the past two years in Kabul alone.

Nearly 50 people have been killed and scores wounded after a suicide bomb attack on students preparing for university exams in the Afghan capital Kabul.

Mohammad Asim, chief of the Kabul ambulance services, says one person was killed and 12 were wounded in the attack.

Stormy Daniels quits United Kingdom reality TV show minutes before live launch
Adult film star Stormy Daniels pulled out of Celebrity Big Brother after a row with producers, her lawyer says. Host Jane Moore spoke to her off camera and said both absences were due to a "custody development".

"I started searching of my sister, I went to different hospitals both government and private, finally I found my sister in a hospital, where post mortem examinations take place".

The assault on Ghazni has been the group's largest military operation since the Taliban offered the authorities a surprise three-day truce during Ramadan festivities in June.

Also on Wednesday in eastern Laghman province, six girls gathering firewood were killed when they found an unexploded rocket shell, according to a local official. Afghan forces repelled the initial assault and in recent days have struggled to flush the insurgents out of residential areas where they are holed up.

"About 100 security forces have lost their lives and between 20 and 30 civilians have been killed", defense minister Tariq Shah Bahrami told a press conference in Kabul, offering the first high-level official casualty figure since the insurgents entered the city.

There was no immediate word of a claim of responsibility, but Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mojahid denied that the group was to blame.

Afghan security forces have taken significant losses since US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation combat forces pulled out of the country at the end of 2014.

The Afghan government said it had sent reinforcements to the strategic city, which lies barely two hours drive from Kabul on the main highway connecting the capital with the country's south. US forces in Afghanistan said they had been conducting airstrikes daily since the fighting began. The fighting severely damaged Ghazni's historic neighborhoods and cultural treasures, Bahrami said, adding that he believes the next 24 hours would turn the tide in the battle.

The attack, which came at the end of more than a week of assaults that have left scores of Afghan troops and civilians dead, shows how militants are still able to stage large-scale attacks - even in the capital of Kabul - and undermine efforts by Afghan forces to provide security and stability on their own.
