At least seven people have been killed in a suicide bomb attack on a residential compound in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

The attack hit an area of eastern Kabul where many Westerners live and was followed by hours of fighting between insurgents and security forces.

At least four of those killed were from a nearby school.

The Taliban have said they carried out the attack, which came shortly after US President Barack Obama left Kabul.
