Bin Laden Killed by US Forces in Pakistan

Osama bin Laden, the world’s most wanted terrorist, was killed in a fiery American raid on his fortress-like compound in a Pakistani town that is home to three army regiments. His location, “custom built to hide someone of significance,” raised pointed questions of whether Pakistani authorities knew the whereabouts of the world’s most wanted man. The death comes almost ten years after the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

The al-Qaida chief was living in a house in the town of Abbottabad that a U.S. official said was “custom built to hide someone of significance.” Abbottabad is around 60 miles from the capital Islamabad, far from the remote mountain caves along the Pakistan-Afghanistan tribal border where most intelligence assessments had put bin Laden in recent years.
