Osama bin Laden in Pakistan: Report

While US and opposition Afghan forces hunt for Osama bin Laden in the mountains of Afghanistan, the terrorist mastermind has fled to Pakistan, a report in the Christian Science Monitor suggested on Thursday.

The newspaper quoted a Saudi financier and senior member of bin Laden's Al Qaeda network named Abu Jaffar as saying that only bin Laden's 19-year-old son, Salah Uddin, remains at the group's base in the Tora Bora mountain cave complex.

"Osama bin Laden travelled out of Tora Bora two times in this Ramadan holy month. He left to meet Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar about three weeks ago and stayed with him near Kandahar," Jaffar told the Christian Science Monitor.

"He left again just over a week ago and was headed to Pakistan, where he was helped across the border by Pashtun tribesmen."

On Wednesday a top US official had claimed that the opposition forces have cornered bin Laden in Tora Bora.
