Pakistan To Demolish Bin Laden's Compound

Osama Bin Laden may have gone out with a whimper but his secret lair in Islamabad will soon be going out with a bang. A rocket-propelled bang, that is.

Pakistani officials announced today that, in order to prevent the site from becoming a shrine, "We will hit it like an enemy fort," the New York Post quoted interior Minister Rehman Malik. Pakistan plans to first fire rocket propelled grenades into the structure, then bulldoze anything left standing. The demolition is shaping up to be quite a media circus with television crews, US and European officials invited to watch the destruction. [Business Insider]
