ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan — Pakistan arrested 40 people suspected of having links to Osama bin Laden near the compound where U.S. forces killed the al-Qaida chieftan, according to the Open Source Center,  a U.S. government-sponsored monitoring site.

The arrests came after a search operation that Pakistani intelligence agencies and police launched in Abbottabad, the report said.

Official sources called it the "second phase" of the operation that killed Bin Laden Sunday.

The Open Source Center monitors intelligence released via open, or publicly accessible, sources.
