Latest Major Mission against Al-Qaida Completed - 2002-08-26


U.S.-led coalition forces have wound up their latest major mission to destroy pockets of al- Qaida resistance in southeastern Afghanistan with the arrest of 10 suspects.

U-S military spokesman Colonel Roger King said at Bagram Air Base just north of Kabul that some two-thousand coalition troops, including local Afghans, uncovered five weapons caches and two sets of documents belonging to the ousted Taleban regime.

In what the Pentagon called a unique aspect of the sweep, seven women in a village (Narizah) were found to be carrying nine rocket-propelled grenade rounds under their all-enveloping coveralls known as burqas.
