Taliban suicide bomber hits Afghan police as Kunduz siege continues

KABUL (Reuters) - A Taliban suicide bomber struck a main square in the northern Afghan city of Kunduz where Afghan forces had gathered to defend the city from falling to the Taliban, officials said on Saturday.

Esmatullah Muradi, a spokesman for the provincial governor of Kunduz, said there were initial reports of casualties but no details.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.
