KABUL, AFGHANISTAN – At least three Americans were among 21 killed in a Taliban attack Friday on a Kabul restaurant popular with foreigners and affluent Afghans, the deadliest violence against foreign civilians in the country since the start of the war nearly 13 years ago.
The U.S. Embassy in Kabul confirmed early Saturday in a Twitter posting that Americans were among those killed. "Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of those who were killed," the post read.
Kabul police chief Gen. Mohammad Zahir Zahir said Saturday that the victims included 13 foreigners and eight Afghans, and that the majority are civilians.

The dead included the head of the International Monetary Fund in Afghanistan and three United Nations staff. (Continue Reading.)
