A suicide bomb and gun attack on a government security office in central Kabul has killed at least 28 people and wounded over 300.

Most of the victims were civilians, including women and children, with the Taliban having claimed responsibility for the attack.

This is the worst single militant strike in Kabul since 2011, when about 60 people died in a suicide blast outside a mosque.

So, what does the latest deadly attack tell us about the Taliban's current strength? How should we evaluate the overall security situation across Afghanistan? And where does the country's future lie when faced with the gradual withdrawal of foreign troops?

Ni hao, you're listening to  People In the Know, presenting you with insights into the headlines in China and around the world.

PIK speaks to Professor Alam Payind, Director of the Middle East Studies Center at Ohio State University, and Marvin Weinbaum, Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, also a scholar in residence at the Middle East Institute in Washington DC.
