UN chief condemns Kabul killings

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has condemned as “shocking and shameless” a Taliban raid which killed at least five UN workers in the Afghan capital Kabul.

But Mr Ban said the UN would not be deterred from its mission there.

Three Afghans also died when suicide bombers stormed a UN guesthouse in the city. The three attackers were killed in a long battle with security forces.

The Taliban said the attack was the first step in its bid to disrupt next week’s presidential run-off election.

In a separate attack, rockets were fired at the city’s five-star Serena Hotel, but no-one was injured.
