Two bombings targeting vehicles carrying Taliban members in Jalalabad, Afghanistan, result in the death of two people and the wounding of 19 others.
Taliban spokesperson Zabiullah Mujahid says that yesterday's airstrike by the United States killed civilians and that if "there was any potential threat in Afghanistan, it should have been reported to us, not an arbitrary attack that has resulted in civilian casualties".
According to a police chief, at least 40 Taliban fighters are killed after launching an offensive against Afghan security forces to seize the strategic northern city of Kunduz while four security force personnel are also killed.
Three Taliban insurgents are killed by a team of Afghan police and private commandos after attacking a former National Directorate of Security headquarters in Kandahar, Afghanistan. The Taliban claims they killed four commandos and five policemen, which police deny.
