A temporary Afghan cease-fire was in shreds Friday after a rocket destroyed a Russian military plane sent to airlift diplomats out of Kabul. The dissident Hezb-i-Islami movement said Afghan MIG fighters and SU-22 bombers raided its bases south of Kabul after the government's 10-hour cease-fire expired Friday afternoon. The air raids took place hours after a rocket struck the airport, starting a fire that destroyed one of three Russian transport planes and injured four commandos.
