At least 14 people have been killed including three UN staff after a suicide bomber detonated a device in a restaurant in central Kabul in Afghanistan.

An unknown number of people including Afghans and foreign nationals were also injured.

The attack, which took place on Friday evening was condemned by the UN Secretary-General as "horrific."

He said "targeted attacks against civilians" were completely unacceptable and were in flagrant breach of international humanitarian law.

The UN mission in Afghanistan, UNAMA, said the Taliban had claimed responsibility.
