Manmohan Singh New Delhi, May 2 (ANI): Terming Osama bin Laden’s killing as a significant step forward, the Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, on Monday asked the international community and Pakistan in particular to work comprehensively to end the activities of all such terror groups.

“I welcome it as a significant step forward and hope that it will deal a decisive blow to Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups. The international community and Pakistan in particular must work comprehensively to end the activities of all such groups who threaten civilized behaviour and kill innocent men, women and children,” said Dr. Singh on US announcement of Osama’s killing.

The United States Government earlier today informed that Osama bin Laden had been killed by security forces somewhere ‘deep inside Pakistan’.

Osama, 54, who created and funded the al Qaeda terror network, was accused of being behind a number of atrocities, including the attacks on New York and Washington on 11 September 2001.

He was suspected of playing large roles in the 1998 bombings of two US Embassies in Africa and the attack on the USS Cole in the Yemeni port of Aden in October 2000. (ANI)
