Hundreds of Islamists rallied in Pakistan’s southwestern city of Quetta Thursday to pay tribute to al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden on the second anniversary of his death.

Organised by a pro-Taliban faction of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI), headed by Maulvi Ismatullah, some 450 participants at the rally chanted: “Long live Islamic jehad and long live Mulla Omar!” an AFP reporter at the scene said.

Many of them were also carrying portraits of bin Laden.

The JUI’s central secretary for information, Maulana Abdul Sattar Chisti, paid tributes to bin Laden.

“We are observing death anniversary of an Islamic hero, who was killed by American and Pakistani agents,” he said.
