  Taleban leaders captured in Kabul
Updated 16 November 2001, 06.41

Rebel forces in Afghanistan say they've captured several Taleban leaders in the capital Kabul.

US officials say those caught include some important people in Osama Bin Laden's al-Quaeda group, but not Bin Laden himself.


Al-Quaeda is thought to be behind the 11 September terrorist attacks.

On Thursday, America said it had killed several men working for Bin Laden, who were hiding in Kabul and Kandahar when they were hit by US bombs.

Bin Laden himself is in hiding and only his closest followers know where he is. The US is hoping to get some information from the captured leaders on his whereabouts.

But the Pentagon admits he could have already left Afghanistan.
