Bin Laden’s Pakistan Links

A cell phone found in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan contained contacts to Harakatul Mujahedeen, The New York Times reported on Thursday, citing senior US officials briefed on the findings.

The discovery indicated that bin Laden used the group as part of his support network inside Pakistan, the newspaper said, citing the officials and other sources it did not identify.

The newspaper quoted analysts familiar with Harakat as saying it had deep roots in the area around Abbottabad. Its leaders have strong ties with both al Qaeda and the Pakistani intelligence, the Times said.
