Nothing New in Bin Laden Death Report: Boroujerdi

Speaking to ICANA here in Tehran on Monday, Head of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi stated that he couldn't confirm the report on the death of bin Laden.

"They (Americans) have announced several times that bin Laden is dead. That is not new," Boroujerdi stated.

Meantime, he said that even if the report is proved to be true, it wouldn't be a "great work", considering that the US forces attacked Afghanistan 10 years ago under the pretext of confronting the elements who were behind September 11, 2011 attacks on the US.

US President Barack Obama announced late last night that Al-Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden was killed Sunday in a raid by US covert forces in Pakistan.

"Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al-Qaeda," Obama said in a late night address.

Obama said he had directed helicopter-borne US armed forces to launch an attack against a heavily fortified compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan on Sunday acting on a lead that first emerged last August.

"A small team of Americans… killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body," Obama said.

Senior US officials said that in addition to bin Laden, three adult males died in the raid, two who were believed to be couriers for the Al-Qaeda leader, and one who was said to be one of his adult sons.

One woman who was being used as a human shield was also killed, the officials said.

American forces lost a helicopter in the operation, the official said.
