Secretary of State Colin Powell says the battle against al-Qaida holdouts in the eastern Afghan mountains is winding down. One Afghan commander estimates that three-quarters of the enemy force has been destroyed. Coalition forces reportedly have NOT over-run the al-Qaida fighters' final positions yet. But a U-S military spokesman says the fighters are in ``much smaller pockets now.'' He says allied forces will keep working their way through the area until the remaining holdouts are taken out. Meantime, hundreds of allied Afghan fighters are massing in the area, apparently gearing up for the final push.
