Five people have been killed in a shooting attack on the house of a member of parliament in Afghanistan's capital, Kabul.

An Afghan police official said three gunmen attacked the house of Mir Wali, a lawmaker from the volatile southern province of Helmand, on Wednesday.

The official confirmed that at least three security guards and two members of Wali's family were killed in the assault.

Local Afghan media reports said among the dead are two of the lawmaker's grandchildren.

A number of Wali’s family members and friends have been taken hostage by the gunmen.

The people of Afghanistan have been suffering from violence and insecurity since the United States and its allies invaded the country as part of Washington’s so-called war on terror in 2001.

Taliban lost its grip over Afghanistan in the US-led military invasion, but security has not been delivered to the country despite the presence of foreign boots on Afghan soil.
