A coordinated attack involving suicide bombers and a powerful car bomb has hit the headquarters of the Kabul traffic department.

This was followed by a clash between insurgents and security forces.

The Taliban have claimed responsibility for the attack, which comes less than a week after six suicide bombers blew themselves up at the Afghan spy agency in Kabul, killing two people.

It’s reported that Four policemen and seven civilians were wounded when the first two bombers detonated explosives at the traffic department.

Up to two more suicide bombers armed with automatic rifles then stormed the building.

Violence has been increasing across the country over the last year, creating concern over how the 350,000 strong Afghan security forces will cope when foreign troops withdraw in 2014.
