Pakistan arrests dozens in connection with bin Laden compound

Dozens of people in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad have been arrested because of their suspected connections to the compound where Osama bin Laden was shot and killed, a Pakistani intelligence official said Friday.

Some of the individuals were arrested around the compound and investigators still need to determine if any of the people arrested have any connection with al Qaeda.

This story is developing. We'll bring you the latest information as soon as we get it.

    If I were Bush or Obama, I would tell the world that USA is sorry for breeding terrorists e.g. Osama Bin Laden and from now on USA will no longer interfere in internal matters of other countries (current example Libya) and USA will lock up CIA agents who kill innocent people all over the world.

      U.S. CIA agents should get a reward and a nice retirement for all the good work they do in the world. Pakistan has contributed almost nothing to the world except more people and instability. We backed the wrong horse in that area.. India should have been receiving every dollar sent to Pakistan and we should have made sure no nuclear reactor was ever assembled in that nation.

    A little late to the party aren't they? Totally a publicity stunt. Or perhaps they want to know who provided help to the Americans? Lol

    Obviously Pakistan is rounding up "the usual suspects" to offer these scapegoats as proof that they are fully cooperative with the super power that pumps billions of dollars into their sh-t hole of a country. Cut off that aid and watch how fast they kiss the taliban's ass.

    A DELAYED REACTIONS FROM THEIR GOVERNMENT! John Galt is more likely correct in his comment that the Pakis arrested dozens of their citizens "to find out who gave the informations to the U.S. CIA" that led to the killing of their 'money maker'! That action had already earned in the past! Hey Pakis, do you think, you can fool the people of the world? Your action is too late to convince us.

    I’m reminded of that scene at the end of the Humphrey Bogart movie, Casablanca, where Claude Rains says:
    “Round up the usual suspects.”

    When I read this I’m reminded of that final scene in the Humphrey Bogart movie, Casablanca, where Claude Raines says to his men, “Round up the usual suspects!”
