KABUL (Reuters) - Afghan Taliban insurgents attacked a guesthouse used by foreigners in an upscale residential part of the capital Kabul on Friday, police said.
"A suicide bomber detonated his car loaded with explosives in front of a guesthouse used by foreign and Afghan citizens and now a number of suicide bombers are apparently inside," said Hashmat Stanikzai, a spokesman for Kabul's police chief.
"A gunfight is under way. There are no reports of possible casualities."
The Taliban claimed responsibility, saying in a statement the target was a foreign guesthouse and a church.
