Bush again vows to capture Osama 'dead or alive'

T V Parasuram in Washington

President George W Bush on Friday vowed to capture Osama bin Laden 'dead or alive' and said the United States will keep the terror suspect on the run.

Bush, speaking at a news conference at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, said if bin Laden has fled to Pakistan, the US can count on the support of President Pervez Musharraf.

"We believe he (Musharraf) will help us, if in fact he (bin Laden) happens to be in Pakistan," said Bush.

"Who knows where he is. But one thing is for certain: He is on the losing side of a rout," he said.

He said, "The US is on the hunt and he knows that we are on the hunt. And I like our position better than his."

Asked whether he believes bin Laden is still in control of the Al Qaeda network, Bush said: "Who knows?"

Both Bush and General Tommy Franks, standing beside him, stressed that the operation is an open-ended one.

"We will not be hurried," Franks said. "It will take as long as it takes."

Meanwhile, contradicting statements from others in the new interim government, Afghanistan's interim Defence Minister Mohammad Fahim said on Friday that Osama bin Laden has left the mountains of eastern Afghanistan and entered Pakistan.

Mohammad Fahim, in an interview with Japan's Fuji Television, refused to say how he knew where bin Laden had gone. But he said the fugitive terrorism suspect left the Tora Bora complex.

"After Osama bin Laden left Tora Bora, he went to Pakistan. He is under Pakistan's control," Fahim said.

"He is out of our control," he said.
