WASHINGTON - No evidence of specific or imminent threats has emerged yet from material confiscated from Osama bin Laden's Pakistani hideout, Western counter-terrorism officials said, raising questions about how directly he was in control of al-Qaida.

Aides to President Barack Obama have said that evidence seized in the US commando raid on bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, suggests that despite years of isolation, bin Laden maintained an "operational" relationship with al-Qaida elements in the field.
