Dozens of people have been killed in a Taliban attack on a heavily fortified civilian and military airfield in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar.

At least 37 people, including many children, were killed in the clashes, along with at least nine militants.

A number of hostages were seized in the 26-hour attack but the Afghan army says it has now regained control.

This is the latest in a series of ambitious raids by Taliban fighters.
