Al Jazeera office bombed

According to a report from Reuters, Al Jazeera has said its offices in Kabul were bombed on Tuesday 13th by American fighter planes, shortly before Northern Alliance forces entered the Afghan capital.

The Qatar-based station says no one was hurt, although the whereabouts of Kabul correspondent Tayseer Allouni is still not known, as Al Jazeera has lost communication with him and employees in Afghanistan. Both he, and Taliban correspondent Youssef al-Shouli, have previously been asked to leave the country for fear of reprisals against US occupation.

Al Jazeera is coming under increasing attack from the American media, and some journalists has even called for the station's offices to be bombed and for its international broadcasts to be banned.
