Pushtun units have discovered the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden and are getting ready to storm his hiding place, the al-Jazeera TV station in Qatar reports. Bin Laden is hiding in a mountainous district of difficult access in northern Kandahar. Earlier, the terrorist number one was thought to be hiding in caves of Tora Bora in eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar, adjacent to Pakistan, but having seized the caves, Pushtuns did not discover the al-Qaeda head there. Field commander Zahir in charge of three Pushtun units which ran military operations in Tora Bora told a news-conference on Monday that the district had been seized and some al-Qaeda militants were being hunted for. Foreign journalists were shown 22 captured foreign militants, mainly Saudi and Yemenis. The TV company al-Jazeera also reported that the US aviation had erroneously delivered two strikes at the Pushtun unit led by commander Mohammad Zaman which left several soldiers killed and 16 wounded.
