KABUL - Six Afghan civilians were killed during an attack by at least six suicide bombers at a major hotel in the Afghan capital of Kabul, the Interior Ministry said on Wednesday.

"Police have found six dead civilians," Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi told Reuters. "They seem to be hotel employees."

Sediqqi said at least two of the attackers were shot dead and four blew themselves up at the Intercontinental hotel, one of two major hotels frequented by Westerners in Kabul.
