The Taliban's attack in central Afghanistan on Monday had killed scores of security personnel, officials said, with some estimates putting the death toll at more than 100.

Attackers rammed a captured military Humvee packed with explosives into a training centre of the National Directorate for Security (NDS) in Maidan Wardak province, west of the capital Kabul. At least two gunmen followed up, spraying the compound with gunfire before they were shot down.
