60 Taliban Fighters killed !

NORTHERN AFGHANISTAN (CNN) -- Afghanistan's opposition Northern Alliance claimed several new successes Sunday in its long-running fight against the country's ruling Taliban militia.

Northern Alliance Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah said his forces took the towns of Zari and Keshendeh, both in the Balkh province, in the north and killed 60 Taliban fighters.

Abdullah spoke to CNN from Dushanbe, Tajikistan's capital, where he was meeting with Tajik officials and a high-level Russian delegation to discuss the situation.

He also reported fighting in the western province of Herat, in mountains near the town of Pashtun Zarghun. Alliance commanders say they are advancing toward the town, controlled by the Taliban.

Another alliance official said the alliance has killed a number of Taliban fighters on the battlefront north of Kabul.

The Northern Alliance is using tanks to pound positions along this front, approximately 30 kilometers (19 miles) from the Afghan capital. In addition, the alliance says it has seized four villages and a mountaintop from the Taliban in the province of Faryab, southwest of the city of Mazar-e-Sharif in northern Afghanistan.

The Northern Alliance, which is still widely recognized as Afghanistan's government, has also been urging U.S. officials to put its experience to use in any possible attacks on the country.

Washington has demanded the Taliban hand over suspected terrorist leader Osama bin Laden, who is said to be based in Afghanistan. The United States calls bin Laden the prime suspect in the September 11 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

The alliance says it is trying to cut off routes to Mazar-e-Sharif, controlled by the Taliban, to isolate the militia. It is also fighting along a front in Samangan province, southeast of Mazar-e-Sharif.

This is a good start :D :D

And now for the bad news, there are unconfirmed (from US) reports that 2 unmanned spy planes have been shot down over Afghan airspace.:( Upside is at least they were unmanned and no one has been injured or killed...yet.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

British SAS have entered Afganistan and have allegedly traded shots with Taliban forces already (according to CH 10 news break). I think the plan will be to stabilise Afganistan by trying to overturn Taliban rule and allow Northern Alliance (the legitimate rulers) to take over, whilst also trying to find Bin Laden. I also read somewhere that Mossad (Isreali intelligence) are pointing the finger at Saddam Hussein for playing a major role in the US Terrorist attack (in conjunction with Bin Laden and others). Anyone else read this?
