BUSH LAUNCHES ATTACK ON AFGHANISTAN

October 8, 2001

In an overnight address to the nation from the White House, President Bush has announced that attacks have been launched on Afghanistan. Early reports say that Kabul and Kandahar are being bombed. A Taliban command post at the Kandahar airport has reportedly been destroyed. Fighter jets are flying over Kabul and the Taliban have responded with anti-aircraft fire.

Bush said: "On my orders, the United States military has begun strikes against al Qaeda training camps and military installations of the Taliban regime. We are supported by the collective will of the world".
