Pakistan military meets to discuss Bin Laden raid
ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan – Pakistan's army chief is meeting with top commanders to discuss the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
Both Pakistan and the United States have said that Islamabad was not involved in the helicopter-borne raid. Bin Laden was killed on Monday in a large house close to a military academy in the northwestern town of Abbottabad.
The Pakistani army has so far not explained when and how it learned about the operation, or why it didn't take any action against the incursion of helicopters, which officials from both countries say took off from neighboring Afghanistan.
Pakistani officials say Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani may make a statement at the end of Thursday's meeting. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
