(explosions)

Another day of punishing conditions from above for the Taliban front line in Northern Afghanistan. U.S. officials say these strikes are hitting more targets, more accurately, thanks to more US troops on the ground.

(Northern Alliance military parade)

It's hoped that will help these forces - the opposition Northern Alliance - move forward. They're wearing new uniforms and carrying some new weapons, but so far, these fighters have done little to capitalize on near-continuous US bombing runs.
The US defense secretary says the campaign may not be moving as fast as some would like, but it won't take years. He was finishing a five-nation tour to bolster regional support.

(Rumsfeld SOT)


The Taliban claimed more than ten civilians have died in the latest attacks. They also reported an American victim of sorts - they said they have turned over the body of a US citizen to the International Red Cross.

(Zaeef presser - Urdu upsot)


Officials here in Islamabad said he was suspected of spying, and died of a heart attack, suffered during interrogation.
The US embassy is trying to verify the man's identity.

(o/c bridge)

The Taliban also called for United Nations aid agencies to return to Afghanistan in full force, to help prepare for the coming winter. Foreign aid workers left shortly after September eleventh, and since then, local staff have reported UN offices being looted and equipment and vehicles stolen by Taliban militia.

(US warplanes, bombing)

The Taliban leadership insists the only thing to fear...is American bombing. But UN officials said with the situation so uncertain, they'll have to do their best to help, from outside the country. KD, CBS News, Islamabad ))
