January 01, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Two Al Qaeda computers containing hundreds of documents and files--including plans for a chemical and biological weapon program--have been found in Kabul, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Containing text and video files dating to early 1997, the IBM computer was used by the leadership of Al Qaeda to coordinate operations, the newspaper said.

The computer contains correspondence with militant Muslims around the world, while files discuss subjects ranging from fund-raising to efforts to create a chemical and biological weapon program.
