US finds no evidence Osama bin Laden had support network in Pakistan
WASHINGTON, March 31 (APP): The United States has found no credible evidence to believe that slain al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden had a broader network of support during his hiding in Pakistan, the State Department said. Mark Toner, Deputy Spokesperson at the State Department, told reporters the Pakistani government had not lied to the United States on bin Laden, who was killed in a U.S. raid May last year in his Abbottabad hideout. “Immediately after the Abbottabad raid, we asked the Pakistani government the question of whether there was a larger network at play here or there was some kind of network of support, I guess, for bin Ladin when he was there. We have not received any information that indicates that there was such a network of support there.” Toner said.
