KABUL (PAN): All suicide bombers trying to storm the heavily-fortified Presidential Palace have been killed by security personnel, a police officer said on Tuesday.

The assailants were travelling in two Land Cruiser jeeps, Kabul's deputy police chief told reporters at the scene. Clad in ISAF uniforms and having fake cards, the assailants in one vehicle managed to cross a NATO-led security checkpoint.

When intercepted at the eastern gate to the palace, the militants clashed with security guards, Brig. Gen. Mohammad Daud Amin said. The attackers were killed by security officials and their vehicle blown up.
