At least two people have been killed and 11 were hurt in an attack on a military parade in Kabul attended by Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Security forces whisked Mr Karzai and other dignitaries away and hundreds fled as shots rang out. Two MPs were reported to be among the wounded.

The parade was a celebration to mark 16 years since the overthrow of the country's Soviet-backed rule.

A spokesman for the Taleban said the movement had carried out the attack.

Shades of the killing of Anwar Sadat there. 3-4 Gunmen allegedley supported by Indirect Fire. Lots of Brass present too , could have been far worse :(

The story is still developing since first reported, but lots of video out on the web of the incident now.
