A few days ago, Osama bin Laden, the international terrorist, was spotted near Tora Bora, a village 50 km southwest of the Afghan city of Jalalabad, reported Hazarat Ali, the minister of law and order of the self-proclaimed Eastern government that controls three provinces of eastern Afghanistan. According to Ali, bin Laden was seen crossing a dried-up river bed on horseback. Ali added Osama bin Laden was spending the nights in caves with a detachment of around 2,000 Arab militants, who he said had surface-to-surface missiles in their possession. The terrorist base of Tora Bora -- a complex of bunkers, caves and hideouts, all of them very well outfitted from a technical point of view -- was set up in the mid-80s and is located under the mountains of Tora Ghar.
