Forces 'positive' on Afghan assault

Nato-Afghan offensive on Taliban-stronghold in country's south enters second day.



    In a series of airborne assaults, more than two thousand US and British troops have flooded into Taliban-controlled territory in southern Afghanistan, supporting Afghan forces in the largest military offensive in the country since the 2001 US-led invasion.

    Nato forces were quick to declare Operation Moshtarak a success, as it entered its second day.
