Al Qaeda trained terrorists for Kashmir: Documents

Documents left behind by the Taleban and Saudi extremist Osama bin Laden's Al Qaeda terrorist network in haste in Kabul recently describe the kind of training terrorist recruits from around the trouble spots in the world, including Kashmir, received in the camps in Afghanistan.

One document says Al Qaeda 'is imparting military education and training to recruits from different countries," the media reported in Washington.

The text in several notebooks shows how Al Qaeda instructed recruits in various types of weapons and bombs, beginning with assault rifles and ending with instructions for making explosives, The Washington Post said.

"They (terrorists) should know non-verbal communication, code words, symbols and other kinds of communication used in hard times," the Post said quoting the text.

For recruits to Afghanistan's mountainous terrain, the text says, "A militant crossing a mountain should put his full body weight on his two feet evenly and walk slowly."

Most revealing from the hundreds of papers, said the Post, was the extent to which Afghanistan had become the base for a global network of radical Islamic groups stretching from the Middle East through Central Asia to the Far East.

One 26-page booklet appears to be a primer on Al Qaeda and its sympathisers. One page lists various militant groups. Among them are 'jihad (holy war) militants' from Pakistan, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey.

Also listed but unnamed are 'groups from Kashmir, Indonesia, Somalia, Burma, Bosnia, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan'.

The list includes Egyptian Islamic Jihad movement, Libyan Jihad Fighters movement, Abu Sayyaf's separatist movement in the Philippines and a group called Abu Al Hasan Al Ansar.

One Arabic language article describes how in 1999 bin Laden received Russian anti-aircraft rockets from Bulgaria and how the rockets were smuggled through Pakistan with the help from 'Albanian separatists who are fighting in southern Serbia'.
