BBC | Al-Qaeda has confirmed the death of its leader Osama Bin Laden, according to a statement attributed to the group and posted on jihadist internet forums.
The statement said his blood would not be “wasted” and that al-Qaeda would continue attacking the US and allies.
It said Bin Laden’s death would be a “curse” for the US and urged an uprising in Pakistan.
Bin Laden died on Monday when US commandos stormed his compound in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad.
The statement comes as several rallies are being held across Pakistan in protest at Monday’s raid.
