Suicide attack near Kabul hotel kills 8

“A suicide bomber struck an upmarket district of the Afghan capital Kabul on Tuesday near a hotel and guest house frequented by foreigners, killing eight people and wounding another 40, officials said.

It was the latest in a string of attacks in Kabul blamed mostly on Taliban militants and coincided with a conference on corruption being hosted by Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

The attacker blew himself up outside the gate of the Heetal hotel in the Wazir Akbar Khan district, near a guest house and the home of Afghanistan’s former first vice president Ahmad Zia Massoud.”
