But an official in the Taliban leader's office reportedly said three people were killed.

President Bush is again asking Americans to be patient.
He says the raids in Afghanistan are just the first step in the war on terror, and says those responsible for the September 11th attacks may "burrow deeper" in their hiding places.
Bush also cautions that American soldiers may die in the ongoing battle against terrorism.
Meanwhile, the F-B-I is urging law enforcement across the country to move to the highest level of alert.
