The US military hopes that Afghans seeking a $25 million reward, not American soldiers, will creep through caves hunting for top al-Qaida terrorist leaders, including Oasma bin Laden, top right. The bounty offered for bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahri, top left, bin Laden's top lieutenant, and other top aides, plus additional reward money from the CIA, should encourage the search, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said on Nov. 19, 2001. To spread word of the $25 million reward for getting bin Laden, the US military is dropping local-language leaflets over Afghanistan ``like snowflakes in December in Chicago,'' Rumsfeld said. —AP/PTI
