HAVANA - The United States "executed" Osama bin Laden and showed "weakness and insecurity" in its attack on his Pakistani sanctuary, former Cuban leader Fidel Castro said in a column published on Thursday in the state-run press.

Castro, 84, wrote that US President Barack Obama "has no way to hide that Osama was executed in the presence of his children and wives".

The former Cuban president said the operation by US special forces violated Pakistani law and offended the country's religious traditions and national dignity.
