Osama bin Ladens gömställe i Iran avslöjat

Osama Bin Ladens gömställe i Iran
avslöjades på måndagen genom en
läcka till en kuwaitisk dagstidning,
sannolikt från turkiska underrättelse-
tjänsten, skriver välunderrättade
Osama bin Laden's hiding place was
pinned down for the first time Monday,
June 7, by the Kuwaiti Al-Siyassa as
the mountainous town of Savzevar
in the northeastern Iranian province
of Khorasan, 220 km west of Mashhad.
He is said to have lived there under
Tehran's protection for the last five
years, along with Ayman Al-Zawahiri
and five other high-ranking al Qaeda
leaders.Debkafile's intelligence sources
disclosed Monday night that Turkish
prime minister Recep Erdogan and
his intelligence chiefs are well aware
that Bin Laden and Zawahiri are hiding
in Iran. The leak to the Kuwait paper
was intended to show the Obama
administration that the Turkish leader's
ties with Iran had grown intense enough
for him to be fully in the picture of Iran's
secret sanctuary for the authors of the
9/11 attacks on the United States.
Savzevar, a small town of about a

quarter of a million inhabitants, is
connected by road to Tehran and
Mashhad and has a small airport.
A center for producing grapes and
raisins, its location is remote and
difficult to access because it is en-
closed by lofty mountains and a salt
desert 50,000 square kilometers in area.
