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.

    Just give them a another couple of billions in foreign aide. The American People don't care. We tax payers ( the few that there are ) love for our moneys to go to middle eastern countries that have used and abused us for years.

    Don't forget that India is our main ally in that part of the world; they are also the worlds largest democracy and are also nuclear armed. CHECKMATE!

      Thanks for your comment– it's amazing how people enjoy to dwell in dellusion, total ignorance. Anyways, I can't believe Pakistan. They've got some nerves. Good thing Obama's a cool dude. I'd teach them a lesson by making their incompetent fundaments vomit up those bloody billions on the spot.

    Cesar- you do realize if they fired a bomb at the US they would get the same thing in return. Why would they do that? Furthermore, you seem pretty unhappy with the USA, nobody is making you stay-it is a free country after all. I hope you can find some happiness in your life.

    They need FBI to help them find the whole network of support. Pakistan has a corrupt law enforcement system and a corrupt government. US should require for Pakistan to have FBI conduct the investigation in order to get the aid.

    Not nearly as expensive as the evidence of correct grade school level grammar and punctuation sorely missing from your post.

    Ceaser u nuts or what? For pakistan to bomb us they will have to load a b52 and load a nuclear weapon and fly halfway around the world to usa....dont you you think its just enough time for us to negotiate that plane and bring it down? Now is the best time to bomb them becoz they are unprepared and in stafe of shock after their action of hiding laden was exppsed....

    Cesar- If you were the President- either Bush or Obama- how would you have handled the situation after 9-11. I imagine you won't respond. But I'd be interested in your response. Thanks.

    We should give our billions to our true ally, India. We have screwed them over for years in favor of Pakistan. Who, by the way points their nukes toward the west.

    Don't forget we have much better missile defense than Pakistan. Not to mention our missiles travel further and we have a better army, navy, and air force.

    Just because a nation has nuclear weapons does not mean that they have the capability to bomb us all the way from central asia... They can't even control their own country, they are no threat.

    It's ok if we bomb them. We're better than them and if you don't know that you're out to lunch. We come first, always. The rest are beneath us.
