There has been a spate of air-raids since Saturday when opposition planes launched four attacks in one day. The air raids began the day after opposition forces suffered a serious defeat at the hands of the Taliban. Reuter - Kabul
An aeroplane dropped several bombs on Kabul last night in the sixth such air raid in five days. The night sky was lit up with tracer fire as anti-aircraft gunners of the Islamic Taliban, who took the Afghan capital in September, tried to bring the attacking aircraft down.
