The Nigerian underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab who was accused of
attempting to blow up a US airline, has claimed that former Al-Qaeda leader,
Osama Bin Laden, is still alive. During his pre-trial for the 2009 incident, the
self-proclaimed Al-Qaeda operative reportedly shouted “Osama’s alive” in front
of the prospective jurors.
In May, President Barack Obama, said that Bin
Laden, who is believed to have ordered the attacks on New York, on Washington
(September 11, 2001) and others, had been killed by US forces in Pakistan.
Pentagon officials said he was buried at sea after a Muslim funeral on board an
aircraft carrier and US officials also said that DNA tests confirms his death.
