As they advance and are already in control of large portions of the countryside, and are now challenging Afghan government forces in several large cities.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the death, with spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid sending a message to media saying “he was killed in a special attack carried out by mujahideen”.

Fighting in Afghanistan’s long-running conflict has intensified since May, when foreign forces began the final stage of a withdrawal due to be completed later this month.

The militants on Wednesday warned of more attacks targeting Afghan government leaders, a day after the defence minister escaped an assassination attempt.

The bomb-and-gun attack on Defence Minister Bismillah Mohammadi on Tuesday night brought the war to the capital for the first time in months.

At least eight people were killed and 20 wounded in a heavily guarded upscale neighbourhood of Kabul. The deputy minister was unharmed.

The Afghan and US militaries have stepped up air strikes in their fight against the insurgents in a string of cities. The Taliban on Wednesday said the Kabul raid was their response.
