Osama’s last Pakistan hideout to be blasted by rockets

By Agencies

Osama Bin Laden's last hideout in Pakistan will be spectacularly destroyed by the Pakistan military in front of TV cameras.

The house in Abbottabad in Pakistan where Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was shot dead by US Navy Seals will be flattened by rocket-propelled grenades and then bulldozed.

Pakistani military chiefs have planned to do so in order to prevent the walled complex becoming a sick shrine to the Al-Qaeda terror master, according to agency reports.

It will be hit like an enemy fort. Pakistan's Interior minister Rehman Malik said they must erase everything related to Bin Laden from their country.

According to the report, the demolition will take place next month.

Pakistan Chief military spokesman Major General Athar Abbas said US and European officials will be invited, adding that ‘it would be a big event.’

Meanwhile, Pakistan has been accused of turning a blind eye to the hideout in Abbottabad, 30 miles from capital Islamabad.

US intelligence officers have completed a forensic trawl and Arabic translators are wading through 187,000 documents seized after Osama’s death on May 2011.
