At least 95 people have been killed after a car bomb exploded in Afghanistan's capital city of Kabul on Saturday, close to foreign embassies and by a police check point.  

Over 150 people are wounded, latest figures suggest. 

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack. 

The bombing comes just one week after 20 people were killed in an attack on the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul.
