Eight militants and 10 others are dead after a brazen, carefully-orchestrated attack on a Kabul hotel that the Taliban has claimed responsibility for, officials said Wednesday.

Two police officers are among those killed in the attack that began late Tuesday night and carried into Wednesday at the Hotel Inter-Continental, according to the Afghan Interior Ministry.
