KABUL (Reuters) - At least two private U.S. citizens were among the 21 people killed in Friday's attack by Taliban fighters on a restaurant in Kabul, the U.S. embassy in the Afghan capital said in a post on Twitter.
The International Monetary Fund's (IMF) representative in Afghanistan and four United Nations staff were also killed when a suicide bomber and gunmen stormed the restaurant popular with expatriates.
