((The Army special forces soldier died in a gun battle near the town of Khost.. in the same region where US warplanes struck an Al Qaeda training compound yesterday and again today. But the Pentagon says the fallen soldier was nowhere near the site of the airstrikes. Gen. Tommy Franks, Central Command "This American serviceman was doing his job. He was out for the purpose of working with and coordinating with tribal leaders in that area." A CIA officer was also wounded in the firefight, but is expected to survive. The deceased soldier is the first member of the American military to be killed in combat in Afghanistan. The last American to die under hostile fire was CIA operative Mike Spann who was killed during a Taliban prison uprising in noverber.
Franks again "I am mindful... important campaign." The casualty of war comes as U.S. and Afghan forces appear to be closing in on Taliban spiritual leader Mullah Mohammad Omar. Top level Afghan officials are now confirming reports that Omar is probably hiding in the southern mountainous region of Baghran -- surrounded by more than a thousand Taliban fighters. Abdullah Abdullah, Afghan Foreign Minister "He is somewhere in Southern Afghanistan. There are reports that he has been under siege, and the area is under siege already. But there have been reports that Mullah Omar is in that area." To fill the security void left by the Taliban -- Afghan and British officials have signed off on an agreement to deploy a peacekeeping force of some three thousand international troops.))
