"This news has just arrived from the Obama office, and" the U.S. president has not shown any evidence or proof to support this claim, "said Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement emailed to reporters. "On the other hand, our sources close to Osama bin Laden have not confirmed nor denied the news." Afghans have reacted to news of the assassination of the leader of Al Qaeda with emotions ranging from joy to fear.
