Gunmen Storm Luxury Hotel in Kabul

Good catch by the Afghan National Police (ANP).


Gunmen stormed a luxury hotel in Kabul on Thursday in the most recent apparent attack on foreigners, but no one except the shooters were hurt, authorities said.

Three gunmen were killed and one was trapped at the Serena hotel in the capital, the Associated Press reports. The hotel regularly houses foreign delegations and is currently hosting United Nations staffers in the country to monitor upcoming elections, according to BBC.

In January, a bomb killed 21 people at a restaurant popular among foreigners, shattering a sense of relative security for foreigners in the Afghan capital. Earlier this month, a British-Swedish journalist was shot dead in broad daylight in Kabul.
