Air strikes have killed the son of the Taleban leader
The son of Taleban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar has died as a result of the American air strikes.

The 10-year-old suffered a broken leg and severe internal injures during air strikes on the Taleban capital of Kandahar.

A doctor who treated the boy in an Afghanistan hospital told a BBC reporter the boy was taken to hospital but did not survive.

In America, President George Bush is prepared to use spies to kill Osama Bin Laden and the most important members of his terrorist group.

Kill Bin Laden

The President has told the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that it is allowed to kill Osama Bin Laden, according to American newspaper the Washington Post.

The CIA is responsible for gathering information on threats to America from outside the country, but normally have no legal powers to kill people.

But President Bush has given them new powers to stop Bin Laden and the other important people in his terrorist group, called al-Qaeda.
