WASHINGTON (AP) - Some of the first information gleaned from Osama Bin Laden's compound indicates Al-Qaida considered attacking U.S. trains, but U.S. officials say they have no recent intelligence indicating such a plot is active.

A Homeland Security Intelligence Warning sent to law enforcement officials around the country says as that of February 2010, the terror organization was considering tampering with an unspecified U.S. rail track so that a train would fall off the track at a valley or a bridge. The warning was obtained by the Associated Press and marked for official use only.

This information appears to be the first widely circulated intelligence pulled from the May 1 raid on Bin Laden's secret compound. After killing Bin Laden, Navy SEALs took computers, DVDs and documents from his house.
