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.
