U-S troops in Afghanistan are continuing their search for al-Qaida and Taliban fighters.
Meanwhile, Britain is preparing to send 1-thousand-700 Royal Marine Commandos to Afghanistan to help in the war against terrorism.
On Saturday, at Bagram air base, the U-S Coalition spokesman said coalition forces were continuing to prepare for combat operations and carry out reconnaissance and surveillance missions.
The spokesman said that in the Anaconda area (A reference to part of Pakita province, the scene of a recent operation by US forces dubbed "Operation Anaconda"), coalition forces had discovered several more bodies of non-Afghan terrorists and weapons caches, which were destroyed.
He said bomb-making facilities were also discovered.
About 1-thousand-700 British troops are expected to arrive at Bagram air base early next week.
The first elements of the new British force - its biggest combat deployment since the 1991 Gulf War - are expected to be ready for operations by mid-April.
A spokesman for the British Royal Marines Commandos said the force would have offensive capability and be on a war-fighting footing.
Overnight rain turned the Bagram airbase into a vast mud field, with the bad weather causing the cancellation of a number of flights.
Medical teams are stepping up their efforts to maintain a high standard of hygiene and prevent the spread of disease in the camp.
On Saturday, soldiers lined up outside tents clutching bags of laundry as medics sprayed their clothes with mosquito repellent to help prevent malaria.
The disease is endemic in most parts of Afghanistan.
The malaria parasite is spread through mosquito bites and causes a debilitating disease.
Back in the camp, soldiers are slowly settling down for what could be a long-term mission.
Humourous signposts have begun springing up outside tents.
In an area nicknamed Viper City, soldiers put up signposts for their home towns of Honolulu and Boston.
Other signposts were more puzzling, including one reading 'morale' lying on the ground.
But whereas home may be thousands of kilometres (miles) away, Sodom and Gomorrah is apparently just around the corner.
