Terrorist Attack on Kabul Hotel

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

The Hotel Interncontinental in Kabul, Afghanistan was attacked by gunmen and suicide bombers yesterday. Gun fire was exchanged between the terrorists and police force for many hours, and ended with NATO helicopters shooting and killing three militants on the hotel's roof. The identity of the terrorists has not been confirmed yet, but many believe the Taliban are responsible.

Alissa Rubin, Kabul bureau chief for The New York Times, reports live from Afghanistan's capital. Also joining us is Christine Fair, assistant professor in the Center for Peace and Security Studies at Georgetown University, to talk about the impact of such an attack, as President Obama plans to withdraw troops from Afghanistan.
