A bomb attack targeted a French restaurant frequented by foreigners and wealthy Afghans in Kabul on Friday evening, leaving two people dead, including a 12-year-old child, and 15 wounded, police said.

The attack comes a day after Afghanistan announced four-way talks in Pakistan on January 11, aimed at jump-starting peace negotiations with the resurgent Taliban.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid on Twitter claimed several foreigners had been killed and wounded in the suicide attack.

Afghan forces are currently battling to push back Taliban insurgents who seized large swathes of the key opium-rich district of Sangin in the southern province of Helmand.
