Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has held an emergency meeting with the country's security officials after the US President confirmed that al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was killed by US forces.

The meeting between Zardari, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and the heads of "relevant departments and agencies" ended a short while ago, presidency spokesman Farhatullah Babar told AFP.

"The foreign office will issue a formal statement of the government of Pakistan on the Osama bin Laden incident," he said.

US forces launched an operation against bin Laden's compound in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad in northeast of Islamabad on Sunday, killing bin Laden and a woman and injuring three other men, including the al-Qaeda leader's son.

The Obama administration did not notify the Pakistani government about its plan to launch the attack on bin Laden's compound, arguing that the reason for not sharing intelligence with Islamabad was “the need to maintain complete secrecy” about the operation.

The death of Osama bin Laden comes almost ten years after the September 11, 2001 attacks against the United States which resulted in the death of nearly 3,000 people.

The death of the al-Qaeda leader will likely trigger violence in areas of the world where the terrorist group has footholds, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Morocco and Algeria.
