Al Qaeda has confirmed the death ofÂ Osama bin Laden according toÂ CNN.
SITE Intelligence Group, which monitorsÂ Islamist websites translated a message posted on jihadist forums.
The message read in part:
We stress that the blood of the holy warrior sheik, Osama Bin Laden, God bless him, is precious to us and to all Muslims and will not go in vain. We will remain, God willing, a curse chasing the Americans and their agents, following them outside and inside their countries. Soon, God willing, their happiness will turn to sadness, their blood will be mingled with tears.
The statement was signed by Al Qaeda’s “general leadership.”
