12 people killed in Taliban attack on a military base in Afghanistan

AP
In Afghanistan, at least 12 people were killed and 20 others injured in a Taliban attack on a military base and police training centre in Wardak province today. A Government spokesperson said,  most of those killed in the attack were military personnel. The attack began after a vehicle loaded with explosives rammed into the entrance of a compound in Maidan Shahr -- the capital of Wardak province that lies about 50 kilometres south of the capital Kabul. According to a provincial official, at least three gunmen stormed the base following the explosion, igniting a firefight with Afghan security forces. All three gunmen were later killed in the exchange of fire. 

The attack comes a day after a Taliban suicide bomber targeted the convoy of Logar province's governor, killing at least seven security guards.
