Washington, Jul 8: "Many terrorist training camps are still running in Pakistan and in various border areas of the nation," said the US justice department on Wednesday, Jul 7.

"Still now Pakistan is helping al Qaeda and even the plot to bomb New York"s subway system, uncovered in Sep 2009, was directed by the al Qaeda leadership in Pakistan," said US Department of Justice.

The eleven page charge sheet, which was filed in a New York federal court against the accuser for plotting to attack New York's subway system in 2009, said that five of them had received training from al Qaeda in Waziristan in 2008 and early 2009.

“The threat posed by terrorists around the world is a threat to security and a threat to the rule of law," said Executive Assistant Director of the FBI"s National Security Branch, Sean Joyce.

However, the United States has received significant counter terrorism cooperation from Pakistan.
