KABUL, AFGHANISTAN — Gunmen carried out a pre-dawn rocket attack on Kabul International Airport today, temporarily shutting down the facility and setting off a gunbattle with security forces in which four attackers were killed, officials said.

The militants occupied two buildings which were under construction some 700 yards north of the facility, and were using them as a base to direct rockets and gunfire toward the airport and international jet fighters flying over Kabul, said Afghan army Gen. Afzal Aman. Four of the attackers were killed and the attack was halted without any civilian or police casualties.
