OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — The president of a Canadian financial services firm says two of its employees were among those killed in a Taliban attack on a popular restaurant in the Afghan capital.

Pierre Samson, the head of Samson and Associates, said Saturday that he two men, one from Quebec and the other from Ontario, were doing auditing work for the Canadian International Development Agency.

He says they were having dinner when the attack took place on Friday.

Samson didn't identify the men because his firm is still trying to get in touch with family members.
