The Northern Alliance and the U.S.-led coalition is continuing its fight against remaining Taleban forces and the al Quaida terrorist network led by Osama bin Laden. To date, thousands of Afghans have fled the fighting, resulting to a vast humanitarian crisis in the country. Some, according to observers, are already beginning to return.
International aid agencies will be called upon to help feed, clothe and house those Afghan refugees, while working with the successor government to rebuild the country. Pat Bodnar has more on the challenges facing these international agencies in this Dateline report.
