Deadly Taliban strike in Afghan capital Kabul

At least three people have died following an explosion in the green zone of Afghanistan's capital Kabul, with at least another three others injured.

While no group has claimed responsibility for the attack, it comes as the Taliban increases its offensives against the US backed government across the country.

The US State Department later said the explosion bears the hallmarks of a spate of Taliban offensives, but could not confirm it was the militants who were responsible.
