Islamabad, May 02: Osama Bin Laden, an icon of global terrorism carried out in the name of Islam, has been eliminated in in Abbottabad, the beautiful city located at 2 hours drive from Islamabad.

According to reports the fugitive leader of Al-Qaeeda was living at a huge Mansion, “with no telephone and TV connection”, in Abbotabad. For how long had he been living there is not clear yet.

A statement from the Pakistani Foreign Office states, “Osama bin Ladin’s death illustrates the resolve of the international community including Pakistan to fight and eliminate terrorism. It constitutes a major setback to terrorist organizations around the world.

Al-Qaeda had declared war on Pakistan. Scores of Al-Qaeda sponsored terrorist attacks resulted in deaths of thousands of innocent Pakistani men, women and children. Almost, 30,000 Pakistani civilians lost their lives in terrorist attacks in the last few years. More than 5,000 Pakistani security and armed forces officials have been martyred in Pakistan’s campaign against Al-Qaeda, other terrorist organizations and affiliates.

Pakistan has played a significant role in efforts to eliminate terrorism. We have had extremely effective intelligence sharing arrangements with several intelligence agencies including that of the US. We will continue to support international efforts against terrorism.

It is Pakistan’s stated policy that it will not allow its soil to be used in terrorist attacks against any country. Pakistan’s political leadership, parliament, state institutions and the whole nation are fully united in their resolve to eliminate terrorism.”

Two wives and some children of the Arab billionaire have also been arrested, according to media reports.
