Osama`s Pak hideout to be flattened by rockets
Islamabad: The house in Pakistan where al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was shot dead by US Navy Seals will be flattened by rocket-propelled grenades and then bulldozed.
Pakistani military chiefs have planned to do so in order to prevent the walled complex becoming a sick shrine to the al Qaeda terror master, The Sun reports.
“We will hit it like an enemy fort. But first we must erase everything related to bin Laden from our country,” Interior Minister Rehman Malik said.
According to the report, the demolition will take place next month.
Pakistan chief military spokesman Major General Athar Abbas said US and European officials will be invited, adding that “it would be a big event”.
Pakistan has been accused of turning a blind eye to the hideout in Abbottabad, 30 miles from capital Islamabad.
US intelligence officers have completed a forensic trawl and Arabic translators are wading through 187,000 documents seized after Osama’s death on May 2011.
