At least six dead in attack on Sufi meeting house in Afghanistan

An attack by unknown gunmen Saturday night has left at least six people dead and another five wounded in Afghanistan's capital city.

Gunmen brandishing pistols with silencers entered a Sufi meeting house in the Western neighborhood of Khoshal Khan Mina and opened fire on those in attendance, Najib Danesh, deputy spokesman for the Ministry of Interior, told The Times.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
