Pakistan halfway done razing bin Laden`s compound

Security has been tight, with rings of police and Army soldiers to keep out spectators and journalists.

Abbottabad: Pakistan is more than halfway done demolishing the three-storey compound where Osama bin Laden lived for years and was killed by US commandos last May.

A news agency’s reporter could see heavy machines continuing their work for a second day on Sunday in the northwest town of Abbottabad.

The backhoes have torn down the tall walls ringing the compound and more than half the main building where the al Qaeda chief lived.

Pakistan began to raze the compound on Saturday night without giving prior notice.

Pakistan was outraged and embarrassed by the US raid because it didn`t know about it beforehand and couldn`t stop it.
