WASHINGTON - The United States did not notify partners about Osama bin Laden's whereabouts before the operation that killed the al Qaida leader and it appeared Pakistan was not aware of his location, officials said.

"This was a unilateral US operation ... We did not notify any of our counter-terrorism partners in advance," a senior US defense official said on Monday, a day after US President Barack Obama announced bin Laden had been killed near Islamabad.

A senior US intelligence official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said there was no indication that Pakistani officials knew bin Laden was at the compound in Abbottabad.
