Deadly Taliban attack on Kandahar strikes police HQ

A Taliban raid on the southern Afghan city of Kandahar has killed 19 people, including 15 policemen, officials say.

Militants armed with suicide bombs, guns and rocket-propelled grenades struck the police headquarters in the city centre around noon.

Explosions shook the area as Afghan security forces battled the attackers for several hours.

Dozens of people were reported injured in the attack on the city, which is the birthplace of the Taliban.

The Nato-led International Security Assistance Force said besides the 15 policemen, one Afghan intelligence official, one Afghan soldier and two civilians were killed. video at link
