Only hours after President Obama left Afghanistan Tuesday, the Taliban launched a deadly attack in the nation's capital.

FOX News Radio's Emily Wither reports:

Showing that the group can still hit the capital despite heavy security, the Taliban says the attack was in response to Obama's visit.

They targeted an area known as the Green Village that houses hundreds of international workers, killing seven people and wounding more.

The attack lasted hours as militants held their own against security forces.

But Afghan officials say that mostly children on their way to school were hit by the attack.
