The American Jewish Committee on Monday welcomed news that terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden was killed by US forces near Pakistan's capital city, Islamabad.

"We express our heartfelt admiration and appreciation to the United States government for the relentless pursuit of bin Laden, who had the blood of thousands on his hands," said AJC Executive Director David Harris.

"This is an extraordinary moment for all concerned about the fight against international terrorism. It sends an unmistakably powerful message of American resolve to go after those who would wreak human havoc in the name of their perverted hatred, packaged as fanatical faith."

Bin Laden, who planned the 9/11 terror attack on the US which killed over 3,000 people, had evaded capture for years until he was tracked down at a villa outside a suburb of Islamabad on Monday.
