Pakistan Razing bin Laden's Last Refuge

ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan (AP) -- Pakistan is more than halfway done
demolishing the three-story compound where Osama bin Laden lived
for years and was killed by U.S. commandos last May.

An Associated Press reporter could see heavy machines continuing
their work for a second day Sunday in the northwest town of
Abbottabad.

The backhoes have torn down the tall walls ringing the compound
and more than half the main building where the al-Qaida chief lived.

Security has been tight, with rings of police and army soldiers to keep out spectators and journalists.

Pakistan began to raze the compound Saturday night without
giving prior notice.

Pakistan was outraged and embarrassed by the U.S. raid because
it didn't know about it beforehand and couldn't stop it.
