Kabul's Intercontinental Hotel attacked by gunmen

At least seven people are reported to have been killed after a top hotel in the Afghan capital, Kabul, came under attack by gunmen and suicide bombers.

Kabul's police chief, Gen Mohammad Ayub Salangi, told the BBC's Bilal Sarwary that troops had now entered the Intercontinental Hotel.

Officials said a meeting of provincial governors taking place at the hotel might have been the reason for it.
