Security forces rushed to the luxury Serena hotel in central Kabul on March 20 evening after gunshots were heard at the venue, a high-security location favoured by foreign visitors to the Afghan capital. The gunfire at the hotel came on the same day that seven Taliban suicide attackers stormed a police station in the eastern city of Jalalabad killing 10 policemen.
