Gunmen stormed a guest house popular with foreigners in the country's capital Kabul on Wednesday evening, killing at least five people including an American and two Indian citizens.

Authorities cordoned off the area around the Park Palace guest house in the city's Kolola Pushta district immediately after the attack began. The area is home to several international guest houses and hotels, as well as the Ministry of Interior and the Indian Embassy.

The attack ended about five hours later. According to the police, at least 44 people who had been trapped inside the guest house were rescued.
