NATO says helicopters kill three attackers on Kabul hotel roof

KABUL, June 29 (Reuters) - Two helicopters from the NATO-led coalition in Afghanistan fired on and killed three insurgents on the rooftop of a hotel in Kabul after Taliban fighters, including suicide bombers, launched an attack, a spokesman said on Wednesday.

“Two International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) helicopters have just engaged three individuals on the roof,” coalition spokesman Major Tim James told Reuters. “The indications are that the three individuals on the roof have been killed.”

Afghan officials said at least five suicide bombers attacked Kabul’s Intercontinental Hotel, one of two major hotels frequented by Westerners in Kabul, late on Tuesday night. (Reporting by Paul Tait; editing by Alistair Scrutton)
