We have developing news coming into our newsroom, as several gunmen carry out an attack inside a luxury hotel in the capital of Afghanistan.

Officials claim at least four men, some believed to be suicide bombers, entered the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul Saturday.

The gunmen reportedly shot at guests, threw them out of windows several stories high, and set parts of the hotel on fire.

Afghan officials claim two of the attackers have been killed by authorities.

Details are limited, but several people are feared to be dead and injured.

The U.S. State Department issued a warning about a possible attack earlier in the week, claiming an extremist group maybe be planning an attack on hotels in Kabul.

Back in 2011, the Taliban carried out an attack at the same hotel, where 21 people died, including nine attackers.

We’ll bring you the latest as it comes into our newsroom.

    To a Muzz luxury means the hole in the floor is tiled, and wrapping paper is nearby so you don’t need to wipe the surplus crap away with your left hand.

    Hmmm? ‘A luxury hotel in Kabul, Afghanistan?’ Who’s kiddin’ whom here? A porta-potty would be an improvement in Kabul, Afghanistan. Flush toilets, indoor plumbing and clean running water would be considered luxuries in Kabul, Afghanistan.

    Are these the same FAKE NEWS media mopes who described Osama bin Laden’s last residence as a ‘mansion’ in Pakistan?
