Afghan presidential palace attacked in Kabul

Smoke billowing after the attack

It has been reported by BBC that militants have attacked the Afghan presidential palace and government buildings in Kabul.

The Taliban said they carried out the assault.

More than half a dozen explosions were heard as they clashed with security personnel at the palace's eastern gate, the defence ministry and a CIA station.

However, the police claims that all of the attackers were killed.

The militants initially targeted the palace's eastern gate - a few hundred metres from the actual building - where dozens of journalists had gathered for a news conference with Mr Karzai scheduled for 09:00.
