Pakistanis Slam US Raid for Bin Laden

Reports say dozens of Pakistani lawyers staged a protest rally against the US move on Wednesday in the city of Abbottabad where US forces claim to have killed bin Laden.

Addressing the protestors, the leading lawyers said that they condemn terrorism but cannot accept any violation of their sovereignty, a Press TV correspondent reports.

Meanwhile, Pakistani lawmakers have criticized the US for the raid on an alleged compound of bin Laden and held the government, the army and the intelligence agencies accountable for the US operation in Pakistan.

During a parliamentary session on Wednesday, the lawmakers also slammed US drone attacks in the country, adding that the US military has violated Pakistan's territorial integrity by launching an attack well inside the country to kill bin Laden.

US President Barack Obama claimed Sunday that the al-Qaeda leader had been killed in a military attack on a compound in Abbottabad, about 100 kilometers (62 miles) north of the capital Islamabad.

Meanwhile, contradictory stories are emerging from the White House about the military operation. One of the contradictions includes comments that bin Laden was unarmed but put up resistance.

Many believe American Special Forces could have arrested the al-Qaeda leader without having to kill him. Additionally, questions have been raised as to why bin Laden's body was so abruptly and arbitrarily thrown at sea soon after his death.

A US official claimed bin Laden's body was 'buried at sea,' falsely boasting that his hasty burial was in accordance with Islamic law, requiring burial within 24 hours of death.

However, burial at sea is not an Islamic practice and Islam does not determine a timeframe for burial.
