China Calls Death of Bin Laden a Landmark Event

BEIJING (AP) - China has called the death of Osama bin Laden a landmark event and says it is a step in the right direction for anti-terrorism efforts.

In a statement released late Monday night, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said China had taken note of the killing of
bin Laden in a U.S. raid in Pakistan.

"We believe the death of Osama bin Laden is a milestone and a positive development for international anti-terrorism efforts," Jiang said.

She said terrorism is the common enemy of the international community and that China has also been a victim of terrorism.
