France says Pakistan position on Bin Laden lacks clarity

3rd May 2011, Comments 0 comments

The fact that Osama bin Laden went completely unnoticed before he was killed shows that Pakistan's position on the Al-Qaeda leader has lacked clarity, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said Tuesday

"I find it a little difficult to imagine that the presence of someone like bin Laden in a big compound in a relatively small town could go completely unnoticed," Juppe said. "This is something we're asking ourselves."

"Pakistan's position lacks clarity in our view, I hope that we will have more clarity," he added, after US forces swooped on Bin Laden's lair in the well-to-do town of Abbottabad that is also home to an elite military academy.
