美国务院:阿富汗酒店袭击中有4名美国人丧生 State Dept.: 4 Americans Among Those Killed in Afghanistan Hotel Attack







The U.S. State Department has confirmed that four Americans were among those killed in an attack on the Intercontinental Hotel in the Afghan capital, Kabul, over the weekend. Two other U.S. citizens were injured.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert made the announcement in a statement on Wednesday, but she did not identify the victims.

A spokesman for Rick Gates, the former Trump campaign official indicted in the Russia investigation, was killed during the bombing and siege of the hotel, which catered to foreigners.

Glenn Selig was in Kabul on business related to his Florida public relations firm when he became one of at least 22 people killed during a 14-hour attack that began Saturday night and stretched into Sunday, his company reported in a statement.

The siege began when gunmen wearing army uniforms and suicide vests stormed the hotel kitchen. They then moved into conference halls and other floors of the building, while shooting at guests.

An Afghan Interior Ministry statement claimed the Taliban-allied Haqqani network of terrorists plotted the violence.
