Analysts say Islamabad has been urging Washington to target militants who attack inside Pakistan and hide over the border in Afghanistan.

Afghan officials say the Taliban have carried out two suicide auto bombings at an army camp in the southern Kandahar province, after several hours of fighting.

At least 40 servicemen were killed and scores injured in an attack targeting a military base in Afghanistan's Kandahar, worldwide media reported.

In the meantime, six Afghan policemen were killed after the Taliban ambushed a patrolling team in the northern province of Balkh on Wednesday night, Balkh police spokesman Sher Jan Durani said.

Twin attacks launched by the Taliban at an army base in southern Afghanistan have killed dozens of soldiers, Afghan officials said on Thursday 19 October.

In May this year, at least 10 Afghan soldiers were killed in another attack on an army base in the Shawali Kot district. "Unfortunately there is nothing left inside the camp", defence ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri told the BBC.

Other insurgents then stormed the base - which resulted in a firefight between Taliban members and security forces.

It was the third suicide and gun attack on a security installation this week and takes the total death toll to more than 100, including soldiers, police and civilians.

But the Taliban said the recent assaults were a "clear message to the Americans and the Kabul government, that they can not scare us with their new so-called strategy".

Considering the number of such vehicles at the Taliban's disposal, security officials and analysts fear this tactic will inflict heavier casualties on Afghanistan's already struggling security forces.

On Tuesday, at least 69 people were killed and scores wounded in Taliban attacks on government compounds in Paktia and Ghazni provinces.
