Three explosions shook the Wazir Akbar Khan district of Kabul, near key ministries, embassies and residences. The attack comes a week after a suicide bombing in the area, and amidst a surge in Taliban violence.

Local police told Reuters one of the missiles hit Massoud Square, adjacent to the well-fortified US embassy, and another landed in Shirpur Square, close to the sprawling presidential complex. A third rocket detonated further away from the heart of the city.
