BBC – Suicide attacks have targeted Afghan military bases in two cities, leaving 13 members of the security forces dead, along with at least five assailants.

In the northern city of Kunduz, suicide bombers stormed an army recruitment centre in the centre of town, where a gunbattle raged for several hours.

On the outskirts of Kabul, attackers ambushed an army bus outside the country’s main recruitment centre.

A Taliban spokesman reportedly claimed responsibility for that attack.

The recruitment centre in Kunduz came under attack from at least four suicide bombers.

Foreign and Afghan soldiers surrounded the building, in which about 100 people were trapped.

Gunfire and explosions could be heard and the recruitment centre – which is in the centre of the city – was set alight.

In Kabul the attackers opened fire on a bus filled with Afghan army soldiers.
