Pakistan rejects U.S. media report on Osama bin Laden

English.news.cn   2014-03-20 20:37:37

ISLAMABAD, March 20 (Xinhua) -- Pakistan on Thursday dismissed as "ridiculous and baseless" American media reports that the South Asian country's intelligence agency had protected al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden who was killed in Abbotabad by the U.S. military in 2011.

The denunciation followed a New York Times report on Wednesday that Pakistan's then Inter-Services Intelligence Chief Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha knew where Osama bin Laden had been hiding.

The Pakistan military angrily reacted to the report by a British journalist, Carlotta Gall.

"The allegations Ms Carlotta Gal in NYT on March 19 are baseless and ridicules," army spokesman Major Gen. Asim Bajwa said.

Gen. Bajwa said there is nothing new and credible and all speculations have already been proven false.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Tasnim Aslam also rejected the New York Times report as unfounded and malicious. She said media organizations lose credibility when they publish such stories.
