Dozens of civilians killed in attacks on Taliban base

Fatima Aziz, a member of the Afghan parliament who represents the province of Kunduz confirmed on Saturday that at least dozens of civilians were killed and over 10 others injured in air attacks on a Taliban base in Kunduz.

"The first strike hit the Taliban base but the second one caused civilian casualties as they had gathered at the bombed site," she said.

The peace talks, whose aim is to end the 19-year old war between the Afghanistan government and the Taliban, started in Qatar's capital last week but this didn’t end fighting.
