Kabul siege ends after 20 hours, killing last militant

 

The last survivors of a Taliban suicide attacker have been killed, ending a 20 hour stand off which had brought central Kabul to a standstill, officials said on Wednesday.

The final militants were killed at around 9.00am at local time after Afghan and Nato forces had fought floor by floor to dislodge them through the night.

A spokesman of the Afghan Ministry of the Interior said that six attackers had been killed during the siege of a half built high rise block overlooking embassies and ministries. A total of 11 people died during the brazen attack on the centre of the capital, authorities indicated.
