A former leader of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad claimed Osama bin Laden took his own life and wasn’t killed by U.S. Navy SEALs in 2011, Gulf News reported.
“Bin Laden’s burial at sea story was fishy. U.S. President Barack Obama lied when he claimed that bin Laden was buried at sea. Bin Laden’s body parts were cut into multiple pieces, which is similar to suicide attacks following the bombing, so as not to leave any clue to the US forces to identify him,” Abdul Fattah told Gulf News in an exclusive interview published Monday.
Fattah said he wasn’t in Abbottabad, Pakistan, when bin Laden died but that he learned this version of events on May 2, 2011, from a relative of the al-Qaida founder.
