CIA to get access to bin Laden house: US official
Islamabad: A US official says Pakistan has agreed to give the CIA access to the compound where Osama bin Laden lived before his killing in a May 2 raid by Navy SEALs.
The compound is in the northwest Pakistani garrison town of Abbottabad. It includes a 3-story house where the al-Qaida chief is believed to have lived for five years.
It was not clear exactly when the CIA would get to visit the facility.
The U.S. official said Thursday that while it`s likely that Pakistani intelligence has already searched the compound, the CIA still hopes to find fingerprints or other clues. The official requested anonymity to discuss sensitive diplomatic negotiations.
Pakistani officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
