Pakistan's President on Osama bin Laden

LAHORE: President Asif Ali Zardari has said Pakistan will initiate a trial against Al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden or his second-in-command Aiman Al-Zawahiri, if it captures them, Geo News reported on Sunday. The channel quoted the president as telling CNN that the two Al Qaeda leaders could also be handed over to the US to face trail if ‘friends advise’ Pakistan to do so.

Zardari said those who killed his wife, former premier Benazir Bhutto, could also target him. “Those who killed my wife are also after me,” he said.

Zardari said US incursions into the Federally Administered Tribal Areas would be counterproductive.
