Militants have attacked the presidential palace and government buildings in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

 

More than half a dozen explosions were heard as they clashed with security personnel at the palace's eastern gate, the defence ministry and a CIA station.

 

The police said all of the attackers were killed. The Taliban said they carried out the assault.

 

The incident comes days after President Hamid Karzai raised objections about US-backed peace talks with the Taliban.
