Al Qaeda Confirms Bin Laden Death and Vows Revenge


By Erika Solomon – “DUBAI (Reuters) – Al Qaeda confirmed the death of Osama bin Laden on Friday in an Internet message that vowed revenge on the United States and its allies, including Pakistan, according to a statement issued by the Islamist militant group.

Five days after President Barack Obama announced bin Laden’s death in a U.S. raid in Pakistan, al Qaeda confirmed the death of its leader as a historic moment, and vowed not to deviate from the path of armed struggle.

‘In a historic day for the great Islamic nation… the mujahid (holy warrior) Shiekh Abu Abdullah, Osama bin Mohammed bin Laden, God have mercy on him, was killed on the path taken by those before him and will be taken by others after him.’

‘Congratulations to the Islamic umma (community) for the martyrdom of its son Osama.’
