In addition to the Americans killed in the attack, six Ukrainians, two Venezuelan pilots for KamAir and a citizen of Kazakhstan and a citizen of Germany were also killed, officials have said. More than 150 people were rescued or escaped.

The Afghan Foreign Ministry identified one of the dead as Abdullah Waheed Poyan, an Afghan diplomat. A statement by KamAir later said some of its flights were disrupted because of the attack.

American officials said they were not yet able to publicly identify the citizens who were killed or injured, but Afghan officials said it appeared that at least three people with American citizenship - all of them either dual citizens or with family roots in Afghanistan - had lost their lives.

Insurgents armed with Kalashnikovs and suicide vests attacked the landmark Intercontinental Hotel overlooking the Afghan capital late Saturday. Trump also hinted that in the future the Taliban could play a part in a political settlement in Afghanistan.

"I know his mother well - she is a good friend of my mother". He certainly seems sincere in his promise to scrap "bad deals" in which he feels America is not getting the bang for their buck.

After the Interior Ministry declared the siege over, TOLO news channel reported that two attackers were still inside the hotel and gunshots were still being heard. Now that they have re-emerged, it is very concerning.

Therefore, the latest whispers of reconciliation with the Taliban and Haqqani network seem like a non-starter for a number of reasons.

Afghan security forces went on every floor of the six-story hotel in a clearing operation, said Danish. German regional newspaper Boeblinger Bote named her as 65-year-old Brigitte Weiler. Some people climbed over balconies and used bed sheets in a desperate attempt to escape.

The White House on Monday called on Pakistan to immediately arrest or expel Taliban leaders involved in terrorist activities across the border in Afghanistan.

Last week, Taliban jihadists reportedly met with a representative from the Afghan government in Islamabad to participate in "exploratory talks" to discuss potential peace talks.
