Islamabad, Oct 2: Former Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto has said that she might allow a US strike to eliminate Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in the country.

The remarks by Pakistan People's Party chief came just days after she said in an interview that she would allow International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to question disgraced nuclear scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan.

''I would hope that I would be able to take Bin Laden myself without depending on the US. But if I couldn't do it, of course we are fighting this war together and (I) would seek their help in eliminating him,'' media reports quoted her as saying in an interview.

''I think one really needs to see the information...But if there was evidence, my first reference would be to go in myself and if there was a difficulty on that I"d like to cooperate with the Americans,'' she added.
