Pakistani soldiers fighting at a Taliban strong point near Afghanistan say they have found passports that may be linked to 9/11 suspects. The documents were found in hideouts militants had abandoned before the Pakistani army began its ground attack in south Waziristan. One passport is German and belonged to a Said Bahaji, the same name as a man who lived in Hamburg before fleeing Germany just before 9/11.

A woman by the same name is reportedly married to an alleged al-Qaeda member suspected in both 9/11 and the Madrid train bombings. For more: AP
