Afghan forces have begun an operation to retake the city of Kunduz, after suffering a major military reverse when it was seized by the Taliban yesterday.

The president said security forces were "retaking government buildings" and inflicting "heavy casualties".

The US said it had carried out an air strike on the city early on Tuesday.

The Taliban had forced Afghan troops and officials to retreat to the airport and freed hundreds from jail, in one of their biggest assaults since 2001.
