In Washington, a counterterrorism official said the Bush administration is aware of al Qaeda activity in Afghanistan, but said no major training activity was going on.
More than a year after a U.S.-led coalition ousted Afghanistan's former Taliban rulers, who harbored bin Laden and his followers, the report said "one of the most recent developments to come to light is the apparent activation of new, albeit simple, training camps in eastern Afghanistan" for al Qaeda supporters.
But he said since U.S.-led coalition forces in Afghanistan were constantly looking for such facilities, these camps were "small, discreet and mobile" and did not stay in one place for too long.
