Pak denies Osama’s presence on its soil

By Iqbal Hussain Khan Yousafzai – Reporting from Islamabad

Islamabad, 26 May, ( Pakistan has denied reports regarding presence of Al-Qaida Chief Osama Bin Ladin on its soil.

Pakistan military spokesman Maj. Gen. Shaukat Sultan termed an American Television report downright wrong and baseless.

He said no official of any country would publicize the intelligence information in this way on media. Pakistan had already said that if anyone got such information should provide it to the country, Sultan added.

The American television had claimed that Osama has left Afghan mountains and was hiding in a valley in the Kositan district of North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan. The US TV had claimed that it has received the confirmed report from Pakistani officials.

The TV quoting sources said that the Al-Qaida chief has descended from the mountains along Pak-Afghan border and entered 40 miles deep in Kumrat Valley in Pakistani territory and hiding in the valley in Pakistan’s border district of Kohistan.
