The hunt for bin Laden's body

The hunt for bin Laden's body
Text size Aa Aa

A US treasure hunter plans to comb the bottom of the Arabian Sea to find the remains of Osama bin Laden.

Bill Warren wants to establish if the al-Qaeda leader really was killed by US special forces in May and then buried at sea:

“Somebody needs to go out and if we are lucky, say yes, he was actually killed, and here are the photographs,” said Warren. “The first thing people say is that the fish would have eaten the body. Well, the fish can’t eat through the sack. It is going to be like finding a needle in a haystack, but I always believe in luck.”

Bin Laden’s remains were reportedly lowered into the sea from the deck of the USS Carl Vinson.

But no pictures of his body have ever been shown – prompting questions from some.
