The Afghan Ministry of Interior has described the suicide attack on a restaurant in Kabul which has left at least 21 people dead as a "brutal act on innocent people".
The Ministry said it was a defeated course of action of a defeated enemy who choose to attack innocent people instead of facing security forces.
The attack took place at around 7.30pm last night when a suicide bomber blew himself up near the restaurant gates before two gunmen entered the diner and started shooting people inside.
