Taliban threatens Westerners in Kabul restaurants

KABUL, Afghanistan -- The Taliban said Tuesday that its suicide bombers would attack restaurants where Westerners eat in Kabul, an ominous new threat that forced American and European workers to restrict outings in the Afghan capital. The country's intelligence chief linked Monday's deadly attack on the Serena Hotel -- a well-guarded, high-profile property in Kabul frequented by Westerners -- to a Pakistani militant. Afghan officials arrested four people, and said they included one of the three attackers, who was disguised in a police uniform for the assault.
