Pictures of Osama bin Laden’s secret lair in Afghanistan revealed
NEW YORK – In a recent discovery, pictures of deceased al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Afghanistan’s remote Tora Bora region were released, 92 News reported on Friday.
Taken by journalist Abdel Barri Atwan in 1996, and obtained by CNN, the photos reveal the al Qaeda chief’s primitive compound which was situated in a valley surrounded by rugged terrain and snow-capped mountains.
Complete with a two-bedroom house, the compound included a series of tunnels which acted as both a source of protection and escape.
Up until his death, he was the number one target in the United States’ “War on Terror”.
