Gunmen attack Kabul's Intercontinental Hotel, Afghan officials say



At least four gunmen have launched an attack on Kabul's Intercontinental Hotel, Afghan officials say.

 
Special forces killed two of the attackers, an interior ministry spokesman said, and are trying to get to the others.


The gunmen stormed the hotel on Saturday evening, shooting at guests and detonating grenades.


At least five people have been injured, officials said. It is not clear how many have been killed.


The attack began at about 21:00 local time (16:30 GMT), with reports suggesting the gunmen shot at security guards as they made their way into the five-storey building.


They targeted staff and guests before special forces were called in.
