KABUL, Afghanistan (CNN) -- Three people died when rockets slammed into northwestern Kabul late Sunday, a government official said.
The attack killed a man, a woman and their daughter, according to Zamari Bashari, an Interior Ministry spokesman.
Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned the attack and asked authorities to investigate, a statement from his office said.
There has been a general increase in violence across the country as a resurgent Taliban flexes its muscles. U.S. and British troops are waging an offensive against militant forces in southern Afghanistan's Helmand province.
The Taliban ruled Afghanistan from 1996 until the U.S.-led invasion in 2001, and in recent months has staged an increasingly bloody insurgency.
