Three South African nationals and one Afghan were killed in an attack on a guesthouse in the capital Kabul, revising the original toll up from one foreign victim.

The chief of Kabul police, General Mohammed Zahir, said today that the head of an international aid group was killed, along with his son and daughter, in the attack yesterday.

He gave no ages for the children and did not identify the organisation.

O ne of the three attackers wore a police uniform, Mr Zahir said.

The attack was the second in as many days on guesthouses occupied by foreigners and comes amid a spike in violence in the Afghan capital.

The US and Nato formally end their 13-year combat mission in Afghanistan on December 31.
