Powell: bin Laden Still in Afghanistan - 2001-11-18


U-S officials say they believe terrorist leader Osama bin Laden is still in Afghanistan -- and he is running out of places to hide.

Secretary of State Colin Powell told U-S television interviewers Sunday that he has seen no intelligence information to suggest Osama bin Laden has left Afghanistan.

Mr. Powell said the whole world regards Osama bin Laden as a murderer and outcast. He said the fugitive will not find safe haven in any country bordering Afghanistan.

In a separate interview, U-S Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz said the leader of the al-Qaida terrorist network is "in very great danger" of being killed or captured.

National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice told interviewers the U-S-led military campaign is beginning to narrow Osama bin Laden's possibilities for hiding.

The al-Qaida leader has been identified as the main suspect behind the September 11th terrorist attacks in the United States. T U-S officials stressed Sunday that the campaign to crush al-Qaida is far from over.
