The Taliban claimed responsibility for the violence, saying they had killed and injured dozens of security forces, though insurgent claims are often inflated.

Those killed were both policemen and civilians, said Bahir Ahmadi, a spokesman for the provincial governor, giving the death toll.

"The attackers have targeted the counter-narcotics wing in the Kandahar police", said Tadeen Khan, the city's chief of police, on Thursday.

The interior ministry also added that the attack wounded 59 civilians and 27 policemen.

On Wednesday, authorities said an insurgent attack in Badghis province killed more than 30 US -trained Afghan commandos and captured an unspecified number of others.
