Lahore: Pakistan Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said the secret military operation conducted by the United States that killed al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad was a disgrace to Pakistan’s honour and pride.

“Pakistan’s sovereignty is being violated in exchange for dollars,” The New quoted Shahbaz, as saying.

US President Barack Obama had ordered a raid by a small team of US Special Forces, which found bin Laden, who had evaded capture for a decade, in a home in a fortified compound in Abbottabad.

Bin Laden, accused of being behind a number of atrocities, including the attacks on New York and Washington on 11 September 2001, was at the top of the US “most wanted” list.
