  US hits Taleban hideout
Updated 28 November 2001, 07.05

US warplanes have bombed a compound in southern Afghanistan used by Taleban and al-Qaeda leaders.

It's near Kandahar, the last area in the country which the Taleban control.

Opposition and US forces are trying to take control of the area after managing to do the same with much of the north of the country.

The Taleban is denying any of its leaders died in the latest attacks.

Peace talks disagreement

Meanwhile, the future leaders of the country meeting in Germany have started to disagree over how it should be run.

The Northern Alliance and one other delegation are said to be less enthusiastic to form a government in Kabul quickly than the other two.

The delegates at the conference have set themselves a deadline of three to five days to agree on how the country might be governed in the immediate future.
