CAIRO — Al-Qaida has issued its first confirmation of Osama bin Laden's death in an Internet statement posted on militant websites, accompanied with a vow to continue attacking Americans and their allies.
The al-Qaida leader's blood "will not be wasted" and it will continue attacking Americans and their allies, said the statement today from the terror network.
U.S. commandos killed bin Laden Monday during a raid on his hideout in Pakistan.
Bin Laden's death will be a curse "that chases the Americans and their agents," according to the SITE online monitoring service.
Al-Qaida's online statement also urged Pakistanis to rise up against their government to "cleanse" the country of what it labeled as the "shame" inflicted upon the nation because bin Laden was killed in Pakistan
