Western embassies targeted in Afghanistan attacks

Gunmen have launched multiple attacks across the Afghan capital Kabul.

Western embassies in the heavily-guarded, central diplomatic area are understood to be among the targets as well as the parliament building in the west.

There are reports that up to seven different locations have been hit.

The Taliban has admitted responsibility, saying their main targets were the British and German embassies.

There is no word at this stage on any casualties.
