KUNDUZ - Three suicide bombers raided a guesthouse frequented by foreigners in the northern Afghan province of Kunduz on Tuesday, killing four Afghan security guards employed by a German company, a senior police detective said.

One insurgent detonated a car bomb at the gates of the guesthouse. The other two made it inside the building where they fought Afghan forces for a couple of hours before detonating their explosives, said senior Kunduz police detective Abdul Rahman.

Ten people, including civilians and a police officer, were wounded in the early morning attack, said Rahman. It was not immediately clear if any foreigners were among the wounded.

Rahman said the slain Afghan security guards were employed by German development agency GTZ.
