Islamabad: Pakistan dismissed as “ridiculous and baseless” a report in the US media claiming Pakistan’s intelligence agency had protected Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.Bin Laden was killed in Pakistan’s Abbottabad city by the US military during a special operation in 2011.
The denunciation came in the light of a New York Times report published stating Pakistan’s then Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha knew where Bin Laden had been hiding.
Pakistan foreign ministry spokesperson Tasnim Aslam also rejected the US media report as unfounded and malicious, stating media organisations lose credibility when they publish such stories.
