[Reuters witnesses heard four blasts over the course of about two hours, with intermittent bursts of gunfire heard during the late-night attack on the Intercontinental Hotel, one of two main hotels used by foreigners in Kabul.
Mohammad Zahir, the head of the Kabul police crime unit, said three police officers had been wounded as they cleared the hotel on the city's western outskirts.
"The clearing of the Intercontinental is still going on. It's not over yet," Zahir told Reuters.
The attack came the night before the start of a conference about the gradual transition of civil and military responsibility from foreign forces to Afghans.
