Two explosions near a U.S. military base in Zama, Kanagawa Prefecture, late Monday could be the first attempt by the al-Qaida network to launch an attack in Japan, ABC News reported on its Web site.

ABC News said intelligence reports in Japan and Pakistan suggest al-Qaida has established “a small but powerful presence” in Japan, leading “some wondering whether or not today’s events are the first attempt at an attack by al-Qaida in Japan.”
