A string of deadly attacks and bombings killed at least 57 security forces and wounded hundreds more across Afghanistan in the fighting and bombings on Monday, making it the deadliest day since the start of intra-Afghan peace negotiations.

Negotiating teams of the Afghan government and Taliban met in Qatar two weeks ago, but so far progress has been slow and intra-Afghan talks have not officially begun, and Taliban have rejected calls by government and international community for a ceasefire.

The bloodiest clashes took place in Uruzgan province as 24 soldiers were killed after Taliban insurgents attacked security outposts, according to Uruzgan Deputy Governor Sayed Mohammad Sadat. Clashes and casualties were also reported in Takhar, Helmand, Kapisa, Balkh, Maidan Wardak and Kunduz provinces, provincial officials said.
