Topic: Taliban claim attack on Afghan guesthouse that killed 11

By Hamid Shalizi and Kay Johnson KABUL (Reuters) - The Afghan Taliban claimed responsibility on Thursday for an attack on a popular guesthouse in Kabul that officials said killed at least 11 people, including foreigners attending a dinner and arriving for a concert. At least one American and two Indian nationals were confirmed among the dead at the Park Palace guesthouse in an upscale neighborhood of central Kabul. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said in an emailed statement one of the insurgents' operatives carried out the attack with the aim of killing foreign citizens in retaliation for the U.S. and its allies supporting the Kabul government of President Ashraf Ghani. It was one attacker and we are still investigating how he got in," police criminal investigation chief Farid Afzali Kabul said.
