First Taliban attack after Eid conflict


The Taliban have started their first attack in Afghanistan's security forces because militants have ended the ceasefire declared for the Eid festival.

The number of casualties is not clear, but some officials have killed 30 thousand soldiers in an attack by the army checkpoint of West Badghis province.

On Sunday night the Tehreek-e-Taliban finished their three-day ceasefire - when the festival of Eid al-Fitr ended. The government said it will observe a unilateral ceasefire.
