Nine people were shot dead in the restaurant of a luxury Kabul hotel Thursday, when a gang of gunmen entered with concealed pistols and began an apparently indiscriminate killing spree.At the time of the attack, the hotel restaurant was packed with Afghans celebrating the eve of the Persian New Year, Nowruz, as well as foreigners who frequent the hotel.The agency said Ahmad's wife and two children were also killed, and their youngest son was undergoing emergency treatment after being badly wounded in the attack.Earlier this month, a Swedish journalist was shot on the street, and a Lebanese restaurant popular with foreigners was attacked by a suicide bomber and gunmen in January. Six people were wounded in the attack, including Ahmed's son, two policemen, a hotel guard, and an Afghan lawmaker.Afghan authorities have released a series of conflicting statements about the attack.
