(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Amman, Oct. 19 (Petra) -- At least 43 Afghan soldiers were killed in a Taliban-claimed suicide attack on a military base in southern Afghanistan on Thursday, an Afghan statement said.

Just two soldiers are known to have survived unscathed after the attack on the base in the Chashmo area of Maiwand district in Kandahar province, the defence ministry said in a statement, adding that nine soldiers were wounded and six unaccounted for.

Defence ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri confirmed the incident and said the assailants detonated at least one explosive-packed truck and razed the compound.
