A group of Afghan Taliban insurgents forced their way into a guesthouse used by a U.S.-based aid group and held four foreigners hostage for several hours in an upscale residential part of the capital Kabul on Friday, police said. At least one Afghan child was killed when a suicide bomber blew himself up outside the building and insurgents forced their way in. There were no casualties among foreigners.
