Taliban suicide bombers and gunmen attacked the Inter-Continental Hotel in Kabul, Afghanistan on Tuesday. It's not clear how many people were killed, but a U.S. official told CNN that at least ten people are dead.

It's not clear if that is the civilian death toll, or if that includes the terrorists. The International Security Assistance Force said its officers killed at least three gunmen.

There were approximately six suicide bombers -- officers were able to kill two of them before setting off their charges. However, the others were able to detonate.
