A courthouse in Afghanistan becomes a scene of slaughter after at least 44 people are killed in a suicide attack.
Nine Taliban suicide bombers stormed a courtroom in western Afghanistan where ten insurgents were on trial, killing themselves and causing the biggest death toll in a single attack since 2011.
The Taliban said all of its fighters who were on trial were freed.
The attack raises concerns about how Afghan security forces will manage once NATO-led combat troops withdraw by the end of next year.
