KHOST, Afghanistan - Four Taliban suicide bombers killed five members of the Afghan security forces during a siege in a police building in Afghanistan's volatile east on Sunday, officials said, the latest in a series of brazen, high-profile attacks.

The insurgents were holed up inside a police building in the eastern city of Khost, near the Pakistan border, for several hours before the siege was brought to an end when Afghan troops stormed the building.

"Two Afghan soldiers and three policemen were killed," Abdul Jabar Naeemi, the governor of Khost province, told Reuters.
