CIA alerts Pakistan about Al Qaeda plan

   Apr 27, 5:25 pm

Islamabad, Apr 27 (ANI): The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has shared intelligence with Pakistan suggesting Al Qaeda's plans to carry out major attacks in the country.

The information was based on documents seized by U.S. Navy SEALs after the raid on Osama Bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad last year, with spy services like MI-5, MI-6 and others. It is for the first time that CIA shared such information with Pakistan.

Some of the details of the intelligence revealed that before being killed in the May 2, 2011 raid, Bin Laden, along with Ayman Al-Zawahiri, who took over as Al Qaeda chief in June 2011, and other senior leaders of the terror outfit had planned to mount indiscriminate attacks on Pakistan, The Dawn reported.

However, there were conflicting reports about the shared intelligence. One participant of the meeting said CIA Deputy Director Michael Morrell had presented a dossier to Pakistani officials while another claimed that it was just a tip about what Al Qaeda had been planning to do in Pakistan and lacked related details.
