Al-Qaeda 'confirms Bin Laden's death'
Al-Qaeda has confirmed the death of its leader, Osama Bin Laden, according to a statement attributed to the group and posted on jihadist internet forums.

The statement said his blood would not be "wasted" and al-Qaeda would continue to attack the US and its allies.

Bin Laden's death would be a "curse" for the US and urged an uprising in Pakistan, the statement added.

The militant was shot dead on Monday when US commandos stormed his compound in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad.

The covert raid was carried out without the prior knowledge of the Pakistani authorities, increasing tension between the two countries.

1. One would hope this would shut up the deathers, but somehow I suspect it won't.

3. It should help, who is going to believe they were coerced, paid or
some other crazy reason for them as a group to confirm his death.

I think this is sealed up now for the most part.
