Afghanistan: Deadly explosion at Kabul Supreme Court

A suicide bomb attack in Kabul has killed at least 16 people and injured more than 40 others outside the Supreme Court, Afghan police say.

The attacker drove a car packed with explosives at buses that were carrying court staff, including judges.

In a statement sent to the BBC, the Taliban said they carried out the attack, saying it had killed judges who "obey Western powers".

It is the second big attack in Kabul carried out by the group in two days.

David Loyn reports from Kabul.
