    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - Militants with suicide vests, grenades and AK-47 rifles attacked a luxury hotel on Monday, killing at least six people in a brazen attack on Western civilians in Kabul, witnesses and a Taliban spokesman said.

    U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the Norwegian foreign minister, who was not hurt, was the target of the assault, which came as the Norwegian embassy was holding a meeting at the Serena Hotel. Two State Department officials said at least one American was among the dead. A Norwegian journalist also died.

    Question is how did they managed to let a suicide bomber and gunman/men into what "should be" a fairly secure/security conscious area

  5. Yeah, probably not the best considering the topic. Yay for for sleep deprivation. I was reading the first line 'A luxury hotel in Kabul' more as 'A luxury hotel in Kabul, what the hell do they want with a luxury hotel in Kabul for?' and responded as such.
  6. Had lunch there a few times 2005 and yes it was a 5 star hotel, as good as any in the gulf, excellant food and service, security was in my view ok as well, shame
