Abbottabad - The three-story Pakistan compound near Abbottabad, where Osama bin Laden was murdered by United States special forces last year, has been demolished with backhoes and cranes by Pakistani authorities.
The compound, located less than a half-mile from the elite Pakistan Military Academy, equivalent to West Point in the U.S., was destroyed late Saturday afternoon, Ria Novisti reports.
Press Trust of India quoted local residents who said all roads to the compound were closed off and security forces in the area were strengthened, for the demolition project which reportedly began at 9 p.m. local time.
Bin Laden was killed in May 2011 in an unauthorized raid of the compound which created an uproar by Pakistani officials who dismissed allegations the country was harboring the fugitive.
Pakistan’s military took control of the compound shortly after the al-Qaeda leader was killed.
