Osama Bin Laden Was Killed in Abbottabad – Home of Pakistan Military Academy …Update: His Home Was Across Street From Police Station & Government College
Osama bin Laden was killed in Abbottabod, Pakistan. It is only about 40 mi from Rawalpindi, military headquarters in Pakistan.
The town is home to a Pakistani military academy.
Abbottabad is a city located in the Hazara region of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, formerly NWFP, of Pakistan. The city is situated in the Orash Valley, 150 km north of Islamabad and 200 km east of Peshawar.
The Pakistan Military Academy (also known as PMA or Kakul) is a four-year coeducational federal service military academy. It is located at Kakul near Abbottabad in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan.
UPDATE: Osama’s compound was across the street from a police station and a Pakistani government graduate college.
Osama bin Laden’s compound was 8 times as big as any structure in the area. It stuck out like a sore thumb.
Pakistan army soldiers rest near the house where it is believed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden lived in Abbottabad, Pakistan on Monday, May 2, 2011. Bin Laden, the glowering mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks that killed thousands of people, was slain in his hideout in Pakistan early Monday in a firefight with U.S. forces, ending a manhunt that spanned a frustrating decade.
