An explosion has rocked the Afghan capital of Kabul close to the US embassy.

The explosion occurred on a busy shopping street near the heavily-fortified US embassy around 10am.

This latest explosion comes a week after United States President Donald Trump committed American soldiers to Afghanistan indefinitely.
