Bomb Rocks Kabul Hotel

At least one suicide bomber blew himself up at Kabul’s Intercontinental Hotel, a Western-style hotel in Afghanistan’s capital. A witness told the AP that the attack happened during dinner time, and that gunfire could be heard throughout the building. The latest reports say nearby streets are closed, and the Taliban took credit for the attack. Al Jazeera English reports that a security conference was due to begin at the hotel tomorrow.
