BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Kurdish security forces killed two gunmen on Monday who shot their way into the governorate building in the city of Erbil in the semi-autonomous Kurdish region in north Iraq, but other assailants were still holding some hostages, security officials said.

Two hostages were rescued. One of them was critically wounded, the officials said.
