U.S. Offensive Against Taliban Continues

Ad Feedback

U.S. military officials say Taliban resistance in Afghanistan seemed more disorganized, Wednesday, as they marked day five of a major attack against the terrorist group.

Military commanders raised the official Afghan flag in the main market of Marjah-- a sign the government is being restored in the Taliban-controlled city.

Marines say they are in control of most of the neighborhoods, however, firefights continue to breakout.

An Afghan official said Taliban fighters tried to resist the military offensive by using civilians as human shields and firing from buildings with women and children inside.

As a result, troops are holding their fire and advancing more slowly. At least 15 civilian deaths have been reported since the offensive began.

NATO plans to rush in aid once Marjah is secure.
