UN staff killed in Kabul attacks

Taliban fighters attack guesthouse and hotel in Kabul.

    A hotel favoured by diplomats in Afghanistan and a guesthouse in Kabul in which UN workers were staying were attacked by Taliban fighters on Wednesday.

    Five UN staff died in the guest house attack and rockets were fired at the hotel in what is supposed to be the most secure part of the capital city.
