Tora Bora deal: Give up your leaders, go free

Al Qaeda fighters holding out in Afghanistan's Tora Bora mountains were told on Thursday that they could go free if they handed over their leaders, reported BBCworld.com and CNN.com.

Eastern Alliance commander Hazrat Ali said that Al Qaeda had little time to accept the new deal before his forces resumed their relentless attack. The deadline for surrender which expired on Wednesday has now been extended to 0330 GMT.

Speaking as US air raids on Tora Bora resumed, Ali said he had urged the Al Qaeda fighters to hand over 22 of their leaders who have been identified as international terrorists.

Sources in Afghanistan said among the Al Qaeda fighters holed up in Tora Bora are some of the top terrorists wanted by the US.

However, nobody is certain if Al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden is also hiding in the cave complexes of Tora Bora.

During the fighting on Wednesday, about 60 US special forces soldiers were on the frontline, wearing traditional Afghan hats and shawls, but carrying US weapons and large backpacks.
