KHARTOUM - Around 1,000 people on Tuesday gathered in the center of the Sudanese capital Khartoum to praise the late al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, chanting "Death to America".

A radical Islamist party had called for a mass prayer to honor the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001 plane attacks in the United States who was killed in a U.S. operation in Pakistan.

Mostly men dressed in traditional white robes, some of them arriving in expensive cars, gathered on a square in the center of Khartoum to attend the prayer and denounce the killing of bin Laden. Veiled women prayed separately in a corner of the square.

After the prayer, several radical Sunni Muslim clerics praised the al-Qaida leader in speeches and called on Arab leaders to fight the United States, widely seen in the region as a supporter of Israel and biased against Muslims.
