U.S. jets resume bombing raids over front lines north of Kabul
JABAL SARAJ, Afghanistan (AP) -- U.S. jets resumed bombing raids over the front lines north of Kabul on Thursday, roaring through the skies over positions held by northern alliance fighters.
The jets could be heard over this village about 30 miles north of the capital. It was the fifth straight day of bombardment in the region, after an unprecedented day of heavy U.S. strikes.
U.S. attacks this week have focused on al-Qaida and Taliban positions facing Kabul and on the key northern city of Mazar-e-Sharif, in hopes that the opposition northern alliance can advance on those cities.
