KABUL - Two Taliban insurgents were still fighting from the roof of a major hotel frequented by Westerners in the Afghan capital early on Wednesday, a government spokesman said, after suicide bombers launched a coordinated late-night attack in Kabul.

"We strongly believe that two of the attackers are still resisting," Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi told reporters. "They are on top of the ballroom hall."
