Osama stayed in Peshawar apart from Abbottabad: Report
Islamabad: Since he slipped into Pakistan in mid-2002, Osama bin Laden lived in at least five different places including Peshawar before finally settling down in Abbottabad in 2005 where he was eventually killed by US Navy SEALs in a covert raid in 2011.
Osama arrived in Pakistan "sometime in the spring or summer of 2002" and lived in at least six different places over nearly a decade.
That included two places in the tribal areas of western Pakistan (South Waziristan and Bajaur), as well as Peshawar, Swat and Haripur, according to a report of the Abbottabad Commission leaked by Al Jazeera news channel.
Interestingly, members of his family also lived in Karachi, Quetta and the Iran-Pakistan border area. They had arrived in Pakistan in October-November 2001, the year the 9/11 attacks took place in the US.
Osama had fled to Pakistan after escaping the US bombing of Tora Bora in Afghanistan following 9/11.
