U-S Planes Continue Bombing Taleban Front-line - 2001-10-25


U-S aircraft have resumed their attacks on Afghanistan's ruling Taleban movement north of the capital, Kabul.

Thursday's raid is the fifth consecutive day of U-S bombing on forward Taleban positions along the front line with the opposition Northern Alliance.

U-S warplanes also carried out another series of intense bombing raids in the area of the southern Afghan city of Kandahar - the headquarters of the ruling Taleban.

The Pakistan-based Afghan Islamic Press quotes a Taleban official as saying a bus in Kandahar was destroyed, killing many civilians in a fiery explosion. The Taleban has expelled most foreign journalists from Afghanistan, making it difficult for the outside world to examine and confirm casualty claims.

Meanwhile, a senior Taleban official dismissed a U-S warning that the Taleban might poison food aid being distributed in Afghanistan.

U-S forces have dropped more than 700-thousand food packets inside the country since they launched their bombing campaign on October seventh.
