A guide to carrying out a nuclear explosion was found among the documents discovered at the former headquarters of the al-Qaeda terrorist organisation in Kabul, the RIA Novosti correspondent reports. The burnt-round document which details on how to detonate a plutonium charge to cause a nuclear explosion was found by a correspondent of the London-based newspaper The Times. Drawings and documents on developing a thermonuclear device were also found. Despite the obvious attempts by bin Laden's supporters to burn down the material evidence of their activity just before their flight from Kabul, many documents, among them manuals on perpetrating acts of terrorism and on demolition, as well as components for making bombs, were found at the al-Qaeda headquarters.
