Pakistan premier defends country in bin Laden case
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- Pakistan's prime minister says the army will investigate how al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden hid for years on his country's soil without being detected.
Yousuf Raza Gilani made the comments during an address to Parliament on Monday, a week after a raid by U.S. Navy SEALs in the Pakistani garrison city of Abbottabad killed the terrorist mastermind.
Gilani said bin Laden's killing was proper justice.
He rejected claims that Pakistani authorities were either incompetent in searching for bin Laden or complicit in hiding him, and expressed full confidence in the country's armed forces and intelligence establishment.
