Washington, May 2 (IANS) German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said the death of Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden was a major setback for the terror group.

“With the commando action against Osama bin Laden and his killing, the US military has achieved a decisive strike against Al Qaeda,” Merkel was quoted as saying by CNN.

“At his command and in his name, terror was enforced into many countries against men women and children, Christians as well as Muslims. Osama bin Laden suggested that he was operating in the name of Islam, but in reality he makes a mockery of the fundamental values of his own and every other religion,” she said.
