Riyadh, Saudi Arabia-AP -- Saudi Arabia's interior minister is acknowledging that al-Qaida training camps may be in his country.

Prince Nayef was quoted in a London-based Arabic newspaper as saying Muslim militants killed or arrested in recent Saudi police raids were trained by al-Qaida.

He says most of the training was at al-Qaida camps in Afghanistan, but that some militants may have been trained on farms or other sites in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi officials had earlier played down the extent of al-Qaida infiltration into their kingdom.

In the United States, critics have speculated about a classified section of a congressional report related to Saudi Arabia's alleged connections to terrorism.

Saudi Arabia's ambassador is asking President Bush to declassify the section so the country can deal with its contents head-on.
