We don't know Osama dead or alive, says US official
Washington (IANS): There are no reports that Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden is alive or dead but the US is making all efforts to trace him, State Department spokesman Robert Wood said.
The official made the remark while replying to reporters regarding a statement by Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari who said citing intelligence that bin Laden might be dead but had no evidence.
The US was still searching for bin Laden on the assumption he was alive, Geo TV said on Tuesday, citing the US official.
"I have no information that indicates that Osama bin Laden is ... frankly dead or alive," Wood told reporters when asked about Zardari's remarks.
"We don't know. We will continue to hunt Osama bin Laden until we can capture him or bring justice to him," he said.
