The Afghan defence minister's house in Kabul has been attacked by the Taliban leaving at least eight dead.

This is the first major bombing by militants in the city for nearly a year and comes after the US withdrew it's forces from the country following a 20 year war with the Taliban.






The attack happened on Tuesday night, August 3 but defence minister, Bismillah Khan Mohammadi was not at home as gunmen detonated a car bomb and fired shots near the heavily fortified Green Zone.Latest Post
