Has Osama bin Laden been sighted? A report with the Government of India says Al-Qaeda’s top leadership was recently spotted near Darkot, a Pakistani village near the border with Afghanistan’s Wakhan corridor.
Sources say the report was made less than a fortnight ago.
Till now, Bin Laden and his deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri were thought to be in the rugged mountains of Pakistan, along Afghanistan’s southeast border.
There is now the possibility that they have shifted to the Wakhan corridor. Sticking out of northeastern Afghanistan, the corridor (a strip of land) is wedged between Tajikistan, Pakistan and the part of PoK known as Northern Areas.
