Iranian Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi claims that Osama Bin Laden
died from an illness before the US raid on his compound in Abbottabad.
Iran has documents to prove it, he said.
"We have credible information that Bin Laden died some time ago of a disease," Moslehi said on the sidelines of a cabinet meeting on Sunday, as quoted by ISNA news agency.
the US military and intelligence apparatus have really arrested or
killed Bin Laden, why don't they show him [his body]? Why have they
thrown his corpse into the sea?" Moslehi asked rhetorically, FARS news agency reports.
labeled the US raid in Abbottabad as a “PR campaign”, created to divert
the attention of its citizens from domestic problems, such as the
“fragile” state of the US economy.
"We believe that what the
US is seeking, by dictated media programs, to overshadow the recent
awakening in the region through the release of such reports," ISNA quoted Moslehi as saying.
Laden was killed on May 2 in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad, north of
the capital Islamabad, during a special operation carried out by US
Navy Seals. President Barack Obama announced the news in a special
address to the nation.
