At least 17 people have been killed in a suicide attack, claimed by the Taliban, on the Indian embassy in the Afghan capital Kabul.

The attack has sparked speculation that Pakistan's spy agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), was behind the attack.

India, which has accused Pakistan over past attacks, has not pointed the finger directly at its neighbour in this case.

Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr reports from Kabul where Afghan civilians bore the brunt of the attack.
