Al-Qaeda confirms bin Laden death

Terrorist group vows to avenge leader’s death


Al-Qaeda released a statement Friday confirming the death of Osama bin Laden, five days after U.S. President Barack Obama announced that Navy SEAL commandos had found and shot bin Laden in a raid on his Abbottabad compound. The Islamist militant group referred to their former leader as a martyr and vowed revenge on the U.S. and its allies, including Pakistan.
