Helicopters end Taliban siege of Kabul Intercontinental hotel

Taliban insurgents, some of them dressed in traditional Afghan tunics and playing loud religious music over their cell phones, took over the Kabul Intercontinental hotel for more than six hours overnight. When the siege was finally ended early Wednesday by NATO helicopters, at least 10 civilians were dead, as were all of the attackers.
