A Taliban suicide car bomber hits a French restaurant popular with foreigners in Kabul, in a New Year's day attack that marks the latest in a series of brazen insurgent assaults.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for a suicide attack on Friday at a Kabul restaurant popular with foreigners and Afghan officials, which police said wounded at least five people.

A police official said five people had been wounded, while a Taliban Twitter account said many "invaders" had been wounded or killed.

Earlier this week, the Taliban claimed responsibility for a suicide attack near Kabul airport that killed one person and wounded 33 others.

Another attack a week earlier killed six U.S soldiers patrolling near Bagram air base outside Kabul.
