Afghan suicide attack hits UK embassy car in Kabul

A suicide bomber has hit a UK embassy vehicle in the Afghan capital Kabul, with a British worker and an Afghan member of staff among those killed.

The Briton who died was a member of the embassy security team, as was another UK national who was wounded.

Three other Afghans were killed and more than 30 wounded in the attack, condemned by UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond as "appalling".

The Taliban, who have been targeting foreigners, say they carried it out.

Richard Galpin reports from Kabul.
