Of 60 soldiers manning the base in the province of Kandahar, 43 were killed, nine were wounded and six were missing after the militants attacked in the middle of the night, the ministry said in a statement. "Unfortunately there is nothing left inside the camp", defence ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri told the BBC.
