New documents reveal the links between bin Laden and a terrorist cell in Manchester

London .- Osama bin Laden apparently had a terrorist cell in the city of Manchester in northern England, whose members had to leave the British authorities released for lack of evidence, reported today the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph. According to documents seized in the operation that killed Bin Laden hit by bullets in the head and chest in Abbottabad (Pakistan) and was informed by the said newspaper, the British intelligence service MI5 CIA received information that linked directly to the terrorist leader with a conspiracy to commit bombings called 'Easter Shopping'.

According to government sources quoted by the newspaper, such information was in files seized by U.S. special forces and secret documentation is extracted from the operation that killed bin Laden. The terrorist cell members in Manchester, allegedly planning attacks on some of the landmarks of that English city during the Easter holidays, were arrested in 2009.

However, as he recalled the newspaper, the police could not then file charges for lack of evidence and most of the alleged members of that cell have already left the UK. The Daily Telegraph notes that the publication of the existence of links between those men with Bin Laden probably now unleashed new development concerns of the British operation to arrest those allegedly implicated in the plot, and on the evidence that can be used in this country to prosecute terrorists.

Is expected at talks British Prime Minister, David Cameron, and the U.S. president, Barack Obama, the next week, when the latter visited the United Kingdom and carrying on there in the future a greater exchange of information between secret services of both countries.
