Death toll in the Mazar-e-Sharif Army base goes upto 140. Taliban claims responsibility for the attack. Prime Minister Narendra Modi condemns the attack, condoles the death of those who lost their lives.



Fighting lasted for several hours yesterday near the city of Mazar-e-Sharif in northern Balkh province. The army said, insurgents targeted those leaving Friday prayers at the base's mosque and others in a canteen.
