US officer: Bin Laden in ”poor health”
The US intelligence has reports that Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is in poor health and is looking to get medical treatment, the London-based al-Hayat newspaper quoted on Wednesday an American officer in Afghanistan.
"Osama bin Laden is trying to obtain medical attention," Colonel Don McGraw, director of operations at the Combined Forces Command in Kabul, told a group of reporters.
"He (McGraw) refused to say what al Qaeda leader is suffering from or whether it is the same kidney disease which Pakistani officials said in the past he was suffering from," the newspaper added. McGraw also refused to say if Bin Laden is looking to get the medical treatment in Afghanistan or Pakistan.
