Aid destroyed as Red Cross depot 'hit by US bomb'.
"Two depots of the Red Cross were destroyed, " said security chief Mullah Rohani as he stood before the smoking compound in northern Kabul.
Afghan staff of the ICRC tried to salvage some of the goods stored in one warehouse.
They covered their faces with cloth and rushed into the cloud of billowing black smoke, emerging with blankets, medicines and tents.
A second warehouse which housed wheat was burning from the attack. A guard outside the warehouse was slightly injured.
ICRC spokesman Mario Musa confirmed that the compound was hit and a security guard injured.
The roof of the building was marked with the Red Cross symbol.
White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said the Defence Department was trying to confirm the incident and determine whose weapons were involved.
He raised the possibility that antiaircraft fire from the ground could be responsible.
The incident happened as President George Bush visited Red Cross headquarters in Washington to encourage Americans to take part in community service efforts during the military strikes.
