Afghan officials say a rocket struck near a luxury hotel in central Kabul Saturday, injuring four people.
An Interior Ministry spokesman (Zamary Bashary) tells VOA the rocket exploded on a road between a hospital and the Serena Hotel.
The hotel is popular among foreigners and located near the presidential palace, government ministries and embassies.
Taliban militants fired rockets at the same Kabul hotel last month. No
one was injured in that attack, which came on the same day that a
suicide-bombing killed six U.N. staff members at their quarters in
another part of Kabul.
Taliban militants also attacked the Serena Hotel in January 2008, killing at least eight people in a commando-style assault.
