The deadly attack follows a drone strike in eastern Afghanistan which has been blamed on US forces. reports citing Sky News that at least 20 people have been killed and more than 90 wounded in a suicide bombing on a hospital in southern Afghanistan.

Hospital visitors used shawls and blankets to carry casualties inside the heavily-bombed building, while the worst of the wounded were rushed to hospitals in nearby Kandahar.
The explosion destroyed part of the hospital in Qalat, Zabul, and wiped out a fleet of ambulances.

The Taliban have claimed responsibility for the attack, which is the latest in a series of near-daily assaults on the stricken country since peace talks with the US collapsed earlier this month.

A spokesperson for the terrorist group said the target was a nearby intelligence office, where he said "tens of intelligence operatives" were killed or wounded.

A nearby mosque was also partly destroyed in the blast, which happened just after morning prayers.
