SMOKE RISES AFTER US BOMBS HIT TALIBAN POSITIONS.
Plumes of smoke and dust rise after bombs, released by a US Air Force
B-52 bomber near Bagram airport, some 30kms north of the Afghan capital
Kabul, detonated November 7, 2001. U.S. B-52 bombers pounded frontline
positions of the Taliban facing the opposition Northern Alliance on
Wednesday, sending up huge columns of smoke and hitting al Qaeda posts.
At least five waves of B-52 bombers flew over the front line, on the
first wave dropping huge single bombs and then pounding the entrenched
Taliban positions with strings of smaller blasts. REUTERS/Yannis
