Saudi newspaper says bin Laden died in 2007

Osama bin Laden, head of the Al-Qaeda terrorist network, died of a kidney failure in late 2007 during the battle for Tora Bora in eastern Afghanistan, writes Saudi Arabian Al-Watan daily.

Informed about this fact, the United States are using bin Laden’s video and audio addresses for its own purposes, the newspaper claims.

Last Sunday, CIA Director Leon Panetta said the US possessed no information of Al-Qaeda chief’s whereabouts, suggesting he might shelter in the so-called tribal zone of Pakistan.

Pakistani President Asif Zardari also doesn’t rule out the possibility of the criminal’s death, although the republic’s special services cannot yet confirm this fact.
