Anti-aircraft fire heard for fourth straight night in Kabul
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- Jets flew over the Afghan capital and anti-aircraft fire was heard here Wednesday for fourth straight night.
Taliban gunners opened fire from at least three positions near the center of Kabul. Most of the firing appeared to be from the west of the city around Rishkore and Kargah -- both areas where Osama bin Laden is believed to have terrorist training camps.
Within minutes, anti-aircraft fire appeared to be stepping up from every direction and the roar of a number of jets could be heard overhead.
On Tuesday night, Taliban anti-aircraft artillery opened fire on high-flying warplanes passing over Kabul, but there were no reports of strikes in the capital. Residents of a village outside Kabul, however, said an errant missile hit near there, causing some injuries. Strikes late Tuesday and early Wednesday targeted the cities of Kandahar and Herat.
