These are the first exclusive pictures of the New Zealand Special Air Service troops in the Afghanistan capital, Kabul.

The troops above are thought to have been among the small group of Kiwis who helped in response to Taleban gunmen and suicide bombers who struck the capital on Monday night.

More than a dozen people were killed in the raid. Prime Minister John Key on Tuesday confirmed New Zealand SAS were in Kabul.
