A Red Cross office has been attacked by Taliban insurgents in eastern Afghanistan, local officials say.

An Afghan security guard was killed in the assault in the city of Jalalabad. Seven foreign Red Cross workers were rescued and are safe but the head of the office was injured in the attack.

Police said a grenade was tossed into the compound, and a gun battle with the security forces followed after the attackers forced their way in.
