Pakistani FM denies report of bin Laden's capiture

www.chinaview.cn 2004-02-28 21:25:49



ISLAMABAD, Feb. 28 (Xinhuanet) -- Pakistani Foreign Minister Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri Saturday denied a report that Osama bin Laden has been captured in Pakistan's tribal region.

Iran's state radio Pashto service reported that al-Qaeda leaderOsama bin Laden has been captured in a tribal region in Pakistan.

"I am not in position to confirm or contradict that Osama bin Laden is captured," Kasuri told reporters in Islamabad.

"I will not confirm the report that Osama is being captured by the Pakistan Army during the operation in South Waziristan," he said when asked about the confirmation of the report.

Radio Tehran said that US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld's trip to Pakistan on Thursday had been made in connection with bin Laden's capture. Pakistani officials said that Rumsfeld had not visited Pakistan. al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden has been accused of masterminding the Sept. 11 attacks on American landmarks in New York and Washington in 2001.

i did write it as a question mate. if he has been captured would Bush be willing to tell the whole world because now that Saddam has been captured who else has he got to blame? furthermore, a backlash would undoubtedly be expected and maybe the decision has been made to dismantle organisations such as al-qaeda before announcing his capture. guess we wont know for a while yet . . .

I've heard a theory that the world won't know he's been captured, if he has, until just before the USA general election.
