LONDON, England (AP) -- Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida terrorist network successfully built a crude radiological device known as a "dirty bomb" in Afghanistan, the British Broadcasting Corp. reported Thursday.

British intelligence agents infiltrated the network and found documents that showed al-Qaida members had built the device near Herat in western Afghanistan, the BBC said, citing unidentified British government officials.

Britain's Foreign Office said Thursday the report substantiated expert opinion that al-Qaida wanted to develop a nuclear weapon.

"The evidence presented in the BBC report speaks for itself," a spokesman told The Associated Press. "It provides proof to substantiate expert opinion that al-Qaida was interested in developing nuclear weapons."
