12 December 2015 7:23


At least five people, including a Spanish national, have been killed in an attack by Taliban militants on a diplomatic quarter in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

The attack began with a huge car bomb during the rush hour in the heavily-protected area on Friday; the assailants subsequently laid siege to a “guesthouse,” and engaged in shootouts with the security forces who later arrived at the scene.

The standoff came to an end early on Saturday as security forces killed the last of the assailants.
