Latest information on Osama bin Laden, world's most wanted man and a hunted fugitive, reveals that he was holed up in a room in Abbottabad mansion for five years and was killed in his pyjamas.
According to Osama bin Laden’s captured wife, they had spent the last five years living in the same room in the Abbottabad mansion where Osama was killed.
Amal al-Sadah, Osama’s Yemeni wife, disclosed this information to Pakistan security officials who captured her after the raid on the Abbottabad compound on May 2, the Daily Mail reported.
An unarmed Osama was shot and killed by US Navy SEALs in a covert operation carried out in Pakistan’s Abbottabad city.
Conflicting versions of the story of the operation code-named ‘Geronimo’ have emerged since Barack Obama announced Osama’s killing in the White House on May 2.
According to the briefings the US commandos received prior to the operation, bin Laden would not have been shot and killed if he was naked.
The SEALS were instructed to assume that Osama was wearing a suicide vest if he was clothed.
A congressional aide revealed to the Daily Mail that Bin Laden 'would have had to be naked for them to allow him to surrender'
Osama was believed to be clad in his pyjamas when the commandos stormed the Abbottabad compound.
Previous versions of the story stated that Osama was wearing a ‘salwar-kameez’ and was carrying a AK-47. It was said he used his wife as a human shield.
White House later retracted the story and said he was unarmed and he had not used any human shield.
The details of Osama's killing are getting murkier every passing day. White House's lack of details on the raid in which he was killed will only feed more conspiracy theories.
