There's going to be a surrender in Kandahar -- the last stronghold of the Taliban.
The country's new interim leader -- opposition commander Hamid Karzai -- says the city will be handed over tomorrow.
The move follows reports of fierce fighting between Taliban and opposition soldiers, as well as intense bombing by U-S warplanes.
As part of the surrender agreement, Taliban fighters will be allowed to disband and return to their homes.
The supreme Taliban leader will be given protection if he promises to "renounce terrorism."
Meanwhile, rebel troops continue their cave-to-cave search for Osama bin Laden.

A clash between Palestinian riot police and Hamas supporters outside the home of the militant group's leader turned deadly.
One demonstrator was shot to death.
Some 15-hundred Hamas supporters threw stones at police and set a fire. Both sides exchanged gunfire.
Also on Thursday, several thousand Arafat supporters took to the streets to show support for the embattled leader.

The protests brought about a flurry of diplomatic activity.
Israel has said this is Arafat's last chance to crack down on terrorists -- or face more Israeli action.

Botetourt County investigators say three teenagers used their home computer to start a money counterfeiting ring.


Deputies have arrested three teens ages 16, 17 and 18. They are accused of flooding local gas stations and fast food restaurants with fake 20-dollar bills.
They say the teens produced between 2-thousand and 4-thousand dollars in counterfeit bills, as well as fake I-Ds and report cards, on a computer.
They were caught after one allegedly tried to pass a fake 20 to a McDonald's employee who recognized him.
The Secret Service retrieved all the money, which had been used as far away as Ohio.

Joe Sailor is one of those retirees who would profit from the bill that increases benefits for surviving spouses by about 300 dollars a month.
The bill would also cut payroll taxes for rail companies and allow workers with 30 years of service to retire at age 60 instead of 62.
The measure now goes back to the House, which overwhelmingly passed a similar bill in July.

The payment was delivered to an attorney's office two weeks ago, but didn't reach Barry Moran until this week.
