At 6:02PM EST CNN began transmitting videotape from Kabul, Afghanistan showing explosions on the ground and incoming missiles. There are multiple detonations taking place in the city, but there is as yet no evidence of attacks elsewhere in Afghanistan.
Observers familiar with military ordnance have identified the exhaust plumes of the incoming hardware as coming from missiles rather than jets. However, there is as yet no indication that the attack came from US forces. There is a revolution ongoing in Afghanistan, and the Northern Alliance is in possession of missiles that may be able to reach the city.
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said at 6:50 EST that the US was not involved in the attack on Kabul.
