Civilians reported killed in US raids

Overnight bombing raids south of the eastern city of Jalalabad are said to have left twenty-eight civilians dead.

The leader of the city's anti-Taleban council Haji Deen Mohammed told the BBC that American warplanes hit the village of Chperagam about fifty kilometres south of the city.

Another twenty people were injured.

The village is about twenty kilometres from the Tora Bora fortified cave complex close to the border with Pakistan.

It is one of the areas where the US believes Osama bin Laden could be hiding.
