Editor's note: Earlier, we reported that 10 Taliban fighters were killed after staging attack on heavily-fortified Kandahar airport compound in southern Afghanistan. @jafarhaand with @VOAPashto has now reported that there are 18 killed and 12 wounded after the attacks. It's unclear whether that number includes the 10 Taliban fighters, or whether there are exact numbers on any civilian or military casualties. We will continue to post updates as we get more information. - Imana

War in Afghanistan (2015-present)

Editor's note: Local officials say Taliban insurgents have launched an attack at Afghanistan's Kandahar airport, and have met heavy resistance in clashes that appear to be ongoing. Taliban sources are claiming on social media that more than 150 soldiers have been killed at the site, which serves both civilian flights and a large military installation. There have been no reports from official sources which match that account, and a US Army spokesperson told @NBCNews no coalition forces are reported to be involved in the situation. We will keep watch on the situation. - Tricia
