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.
