The Kabul Serena hotel said that two guests and two staff – both security guards — were killed in the attack.


The US State Department confirmed that an American was among the six killed.

The nationality of the second foreigner could not be confirmed. The Canadian embassy could not confirm any of their nationals were involved.

The building houses the Australian embassy.

A spokesman for the Afghan interior ministry could not confirm details of the dead and wounded, including their nationalities.

“The figures reported so far is that six people were killed and six were wounded,” Zemarai Bashary told reporters.

“The details of the killed people are not reported but among the six wounded there are two foreign nationals. They are not high-ranking officials,” he said.

The Norwegian foreign ministry said that two Norwegian nationals, a photographer and a diplomat, were wounded. It was not clear if these were the same foreigners referred to by Mr Bashary.

Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Garh Soere was in the hotel at the time and preparing for a dinner meeting but was unhurt.

Taliban claims responsibility

The Taliban insurgent movement claimed responsibility for the brazen attack.

Mr Bashary said the attackers first carried out a suicide blast at the entrance of the hotel, followed by another explosion and gunfire.

“We are uncertain about the shooting — if it was by the guards of the hotel or by the enemies,” he said.

There were reports that some of the attackers, whom the Taliban said numbered four, may still be in the hotel.

“The hotel was checked and is still being checked. The situation is under control now,” Mr Bashary said.

He said the attack was the first on a public place in Kabul that was not associated with the government, the usual target of the Taliban movement, which has been waging an insurgency since being driven from government in late 2001.
