Taliban 'assassin' is caught on CCTV at Kabul police headquarters

The BBC has been tracking the number of people killed around the world during the month of November as a direct result of jihadist violence.

The number of suicide bombs in Kabul has risen sharply - among them, one which was intended to kill Kabul's police chief at the time, Zahir Zahir.

A suicide bomber managed to reach one of his offices in the heart of the city's heavily fortified police headquarters - and the whole event was captured on CCTV.

Richard Galpin reports from Kabul.
