Hog Smokes Enemy Compound

A US Air Force A-10 Warthog fired several GBU-12 bombs near Musah Qala’eh in Afghanistan on Monday, destroying an enemy compound from which coalition forces had come under fire. US Central Air Forces officials say the air strike killed some 40 militants allied with Taliban elements. Other A-10s joined forces with British GR7s to provide close air support in two other locales, as violence in Afghanistan continues to escalate.
