A rocket hit a residential area in the Afghan capital Kabul overnight, killing three civilians, a senior police officer said on Monday.

The victims included a married couple and their child, Sayed Ghafar, head of the Kabul police criminal department, told Reuters.

Two other family members were wounded in the strike which hit a house in the western part of the capital.

Ghafar said the rockets were fired from Paghman, a mountain resort in the western outskirts of Kabul.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
