KABUL — The American University of Afghanistan in Kabul came under attack by bomb and gunfire on Wednesday night, in a siege that stretched for hours as pockets of people trapped on campus tried to escape.
The Afghan Health Ministry said that a security guard was killed in the attack and that at least 26 people had been wounded.
 near midnight, though the sounds of gunfire had ebbed, there were still occasional outbursts, and officials said they were still unsure how many attackers might still be alive, and how many people might still be pinned down, hurt or killed.
Afghan security forces massed around the campus, a guarded compound in the western part of the capital, after initial reports of an explosion and gunfire.
The university opened for enrollment in 2006 to both men and women, and quickly became a prestigious education choice for some of Afghanistan’s elites, offering undergraduate and graduate degrees taught in English.
Some who were still in touch with their relatives trapped in the darkness inside expressed frustration that the security forces had not reached them hours after the raid begun.
Walter Scheel, who as foreign minister and deputy chancellor of West Germany under Chancellor Willy Brandt from 1969 to 1974 helped foster detente with the Soviet bloc and rapprochement with communist East Germany, died Wednesday in Bad Krozingen, in southwest Germany.
The reunification of Germany in 1990, the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War followed a long process of Soviet political and economic stagnation and corresponding declines in Soviet influence over European satellites it acquired at the end of World War II.
 historians say Ostpolitik played a crucial role as an early catalyst, letting West and East step back from destructive confrontations.
In a cutaway coat for special occasions or a turtleneck for cocktail parties, he looked every inch the diplomat: a distinguished face, affable and conciliatory; an easy smile for a telling joke, receding gray hair that curled fashionably over his collar at the back.
 in May 1974, Brandt was forced to resign when Guenter Guillaume, a senior member of his staff, was arrested and exposed as an agent of the East German secret service, the Stasi.
