At least 14 people and eight Taliban fighters have been killed after an attack on the heavily fortified Kandahar airport compound in southern Afghanistan, officials say.

Taliban forces on Tuesday night attacked buildings housing government employees and military bases at the airport, which is used by Afghan, US and NATO military forces.

Al Jazeera’s Qais Azimy, reporting from Kabul on Wednesday, said attackers holed up in a building during the assault took family members of a military officer as hostages.

Nearby businesses were torched.
