    KABUL: Nine Indians have died in a terror attack in Kabul as per preliminary information provided by Afghan government officials, External Affairs minister S M Krishna said. Taliban bombers equipped with suicide vests and automatic rifles attacked a hotel and a guesthouse in central Kabul on Friday.

    Insurgents struck in the heart of the Afghan capital Friday with suicide attackers and a car bomb, targeting hotels used by foreigners and killing at least 17 people and wounding dozens, police said.

    A series of explosions occurred at the City Centre shopping complex and the Safi Landmark hotel, about 300 metre from the interior ministry, said Abdul Ghafar Sayedzadar, a senior police official.

    The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attacks, which Afghan President Hamid Karzai said were aimed at Indians working in Kabul.

    Some reports say Indians were specific targets of these attacks.

    Taliban were seen moving inside hotels looking for Indians.
