CNN. 27 October 2001. U.S. fighter jets target Kabul in overnight
KANDAHAR -- Iran's state-owned radio and television also reported that
U.S. planes and missiles repeatedly attacked targets in and around Herat
throughout the night.
An Iranian correspondent, one the few international journalists in
Herat, reported that residents rushed to the streets as they heard the
sounds of explosions and roar of U.S. jets overhead.
The United Nations said one of its demining centers in Kabul, which
houses mine-sniffing dogs, was hit in the attacks.
"The mine dog center is a large compound that included several
buildings," said U.N. spokeswoman Stephanie Bunker.
"The exact damage is not known, but some of the buildings have been
damaged in some ways. Two mine dogs were killed and two vehicles
destroyed in the attack. There was no injury to mine-action personnel as
far as we know."
This incident comes after several warehouses in a Red Cross compound in
Kabul were bombed Friday.
Smoke billowed from a compound of the International Committee of the Red
Cross, whose warehouses were hit by U.S. jets a day earlier. The ICRC
said on Saturday it could not distribute food to Kabul residents because
of the bombing.
