"Three to four gunmen entered Park Palace guesthouse in the evening. Security forces have been dispatched to the area," a senior security official told AFP on condition of anonymity.
Kabul police chief Abdul Rahman Rahimi, who was at the scene of the attack, said gunshots were heard from inside the guesthouse.
