Afghanistan's Taliban said on Wednesday it had carried out a suicide car bombing against a Western military compound in Kabul to protest a visit to the country by U.S. President Barack Obama.

Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Wednesday signed a "strategic partnership" accord that charts the future of U.S.-Afghan relations beyond the end of the NATO invasion in the country.

The two leaders shook hands after the signing, which took place in Karzai's palace in the Afghan capital.

Reuters news agency quoted Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid also as saying the attack was in response to Obama's signing of a strategic pact with President Hamid Karzai's government.
