Gunmen attack International hotel in KabulA group of as many as four gunmen attacked the Intercontinental Hotel in the Afghan capital Kabul on Saturday night, seizing hostages and exchanging gunfire with security forces as the building caught fire and residents and staff fled.

Hotel manager Ahmad Haris Nayab, who managed to escape unhurt, said the attackers had got into the main part of the hotel through a kitchen and people fled amid bursts of gunfire on all sides.

Afghan interior ministry spokesman Najib Danish said many details of the raid, which came days after a U.S. embassy warning of possible attacks on hotels in the capital, were still unclear and there were no official casualty figures.

However Nasrat Rahimi, another interior ministry spokesman, said several people had been killed and at least six wounded.
