Gunmen enter guest house in Kabul

Several gunmen have entered a guesthouse in a rich neighborhood of Kabul. Witnesses said gunshots were fired from the Park Palace Guest House Wednesday night.

An official of the Afghan Ministry of Interior said Afghan police have surrounded the area, but did not say whether there were hostages. He said fighting was continuing.

The guest house is popular with foreign visitors and nongovernmental organizations. It is close to the offices of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan.

North Korean defense minister reportedly executed

South Korean intelligence officials said Wednesday that North Korea executed its Armed Forces Minister, Hyon Yong Chol, late last month. The spy agency spoke to a South Korean parliamentary committee. They say disloyalty was an apparent reason for the reported execution. The agents said three other high-level North Korean officials also were executed.

The general's execution was reportedly carried out with an anti-aircraft gun as hundreds of people watched.

U.S. transportation officials say the Amtrak passenger train that crashed Tuesday night in Pennsylvania was traveling at more than 160 kilometers per hour. That is at least twice the permissible speed. The officials also said the engineer used full emergency brakes moments before the train went off the tracks.

The crash killed at least seven people. Another 200 were injured.
