Afghanistan's ruling Taliban militia says it will consider requests for the extradition of terror suspect Osama bin Laden based on evidence from US investigators.

But the hardline Islamic militia reiterated that its honoured "guest" bin Laden had nothing to do with Tuesday's terrorist attacks.

The Taliban ambassador to Pakistan, Abdul Salam Zaeef, says Mr Bin Laden's extradition would only be considered after enough solid evidence was presented, linking him to the attacks.

The ambassador also reiterated that bin Laden was incapable of carrying out such sophisticated operations from his base in Afghanistan, where he is protected by the Taliban.
