An hours-long Taliban siege near the Spanish embassy in Kabul ended early Saturday after all the attackers were killed, the interior ministry said.

"Afghanistan special forces have killed all the attackers who were involved in (the) terrorist attack in Kabul," ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi said on Twitter.

Last Night Taliban Terrorists have launched a gun and bomb attack on a Spanish embassy compound in Kabul Friday.

A car bomb was detonated near the Spanish embassy before the assault and at least three Taliban terrorists were involved in today's attack.

The embassy is in Sherpur in central Kabul, where a huge car bomb struck during rush hour on Friday evening, followed by ongoing bursts of gunfire in an assault that comes as the resurgent Taliban escalate attacks against government and foreign targets.
