The day after a suicide attack brought terror to a luxury hotel in the Afghan capital, Kabul, police say they have made four arrests. The Taliban said it carried out the attack on the five-star Serena Hotel. Amid confusion over the number of victims, authorities released video footage of suspects.

Two bombers died in the attack. Afghan intelligence chief Amrullah Saleh said a third man entered the hotel and opened fire on guests. Police say they have arrested one suspected attacker as well as three other people.

At least seven people died, including several foreigners. Norway’s Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere, who was staying at the hotel, escaped unscathed.
