International Herald Tribune -
Reuters, AP. KABUL -- As the United States took command of NATO-led troops in Afghanistan, a precision strike Sunday killed a key Taliban commander near a southern Afghan town overrun by militants..........

Al Jazeera:
Nato begins Afghan offensive. Musa Qala had been seized by Taliban forces on Thursday.

"Nato forces in southern Afghanistan have begun an operation to retake a town from the Taliban.

The group seized Musa Qala on Thursday after a truce deal between Nato's British forces and the Taliban - brokered by local tribal elders in October - broke down.

Nato said on Sunday it carried out an air strike on a vehicle carrying Mullah Ghaffour, the Taliban leader in the area, killing him and an unknown number of fighters."
