Port of Spain (Trinidad), Nov. 30 (ANI): British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has slammed Pakistan for not being able to capture Al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden.

In his telephone call to Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari, Brown warned that failure to capture Osama eight years after the 9/11 attacks was putting British lives at risk.

Brown said Pakistan must throw its full weight behind the war on Islamic fanatics, and catching Bin Laden and his deputy Ayman Zawahiri.

"We want, after eight years, to see more progress in taking out these top two people in al-Qaeda who have done so much damage and are clearly behind many of the operations in Great Britain," The Sun quoted Brown, as saying at the Commonwealth summit in Trinidad.

Brown will repeat his message when he meets Pakistan premier Yousaf Raza Gilani at Number 10.

There have been concerns about shadowy links between Pakistan's secret service (ISI) and al-Qaeda.

"We have got to ask ourselves why eight years after September 11 nobody has been able to spot or detain or get close to Osama Bin Laden. Pakistan has to show itself that it can take on al-Qaeda," Brown said. (ANI)
