Bin Laden 'could be in Afghanistan'.

Pakistan yesterday said it has no information on the whereabouts of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and his top deputy, but said they could be hiding in neighbouring Afghanistan.

'They could be anywhere in the world, including Afghanistan,' Foreign Ministry spokesman Jalil Abbas Jilani said.

In recent days, officials from Afghanistan and Pakistan - both close US allies in the war against terrorism - appeared to be countering each other's statements about where bin Laden might be hiding.

Jilani's comments came after Afghan President Hamid Karzai said on Friday that bin Laden is not in Afghanistan, saying his government has no idea of his whereabouts.
