Speaking of the Taliban

One of the leading hotels in Kabul, the Afghan capital, is under attack, local police sources say.

They told Al Jazeera that six suicide bombers entered the hotel late on Tuesday. At least one of them detonated himself, they said.

"It's an attack on the Intercontinental Hotel. There are several gunmen shooting," Mohammad Zahir, the criminal investigations chief, said.


"There was shooting. The restaurant was full with guests."


Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attack in a telephone call to The Associated Press.
