Afghan security forces have put down a militant gun and bomb attack near the presidential palace, in one of the most secure areas of Kabul.
Officials say four insurgents and three security guards died. The Taliban say they carried out the attack.
President Hamid Karzai was in the palace, but the target appears to have been the nearby Ariana hotel, which houses a CIA station.
This is the latest in a string of attacks on Kabul in recent months.
