A co-ordinated Taliban attack on the Afghan parliament in Kabul has ended with all six gunmen killed, the interior ministry says.

Attackers detonated a huge car bomb outside the gates, stormed the compound and then entered a building next to the chamber.

Police evacuated the premises, while trying to fight the gunmen off.

At least 18 people are reported to have been wounded.

The Taliban say they carried out the attack to coincide with a vote to endorse a new defence minister.
