Suicide bombers storm Afghan guesthouse, four killed

KUNDUZ, Afghanistan, Aug 2 -2011  Rueters

Three suicide bombers raided a guesthouse frequented by foreigners in the northern Afghan province of Kunduz on Tuesday, killing four Afghan security guards employed by a German company, a senior police detective said.

One insurgent detonated a car bomb at the gates of the guesthouse. The other two made it inside the building where they fought Afghan forces for a couple of hours before detonating their explosives, said senior Kunduz police detective Abdul Rahman.

Ten people, including civilians and a police officer, were wounded in the early morning attack, said Rahman. It was not immediately clear if any foreigners were among the wounded.

Rahman said the slain Afghan security guards were employed by German development agency GTZ. (Reporting by Mohammad Hamed in KUNDUZ and Hamid Shalizi in KABUL, writing by Michelle Nichols, editing by Jonathan Thatcher
