Washington DC: US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on Sunday said there is no evidence to suggest that Osama bin Laden, prime suspect in Sept 11 terror attacks on the United States, was in Kashmir. Asked whether bin Laden could be in Kashmir, he told NBC-TV ''That is a possibility, I suppose. I have not seen any evidence that would suggest that.'' He said there is no current evidence that bin Laden is alive.But if he is, Afghanistan is the likeliest place where he is now but is also possible he has crossed into a neighbouring country.
