WASHINGTON - The United States did not notify partners about Osama bin Laden's whereabouts before the operation that killed the al-Qaida leader and it appeared Pakistan was not aware of his location, officials said.

"This was a unilateral U.S. operation . . . We did not notify any of our counterterrorism partners in advance," a senior U.S. defense official said Monday, a day after President Barack Obama announced bin Laden had been killed near Islamabad.

A senior U.S. intelligence official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said there was no indication that Pakistani officials knew bin Laden was at the compound in Abbottabad.
