Fighting continues this morning in Afghanistan, despite news that Taliban forces are surrendering and turning over their weapons.
U-S Marines say they've attacked a Taliban convoy near Kandahar, killing 7 people believed to be Al-Qaida and Taliban fighters.
But Taliban officials say their supreme leader, Mullah Mohammed Omar, has disappeared.
The U-S had said it would NOT accept a surrender that allowed Mohammed Omar to remain free.
Taliban fighters who surrender are being granted amnesty and many are returning to their homes.
Secretary of State Colin Powell says an international peacekeeping force will be sent into the country soon.
Jennifer Jones has the latest on the war now from Washington.
