Mashaal to West: 'Recognize atrocity' of bin Laden killing

May 5, 2011 18:36

Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal called on the West to "recognize the atrocity of the American raid and the burial of [Osama bin Laden's body] at sea," speaking to AFP on Thursday.

"Arabs and Muslims are human beings and the West should treat them as such, regardless of whether they are partisans or opponents of [bin Laden]," he said.

In the immediate aftermath of bin Laden's death, Hamas was widely criticized for praising the Al-Qaida leader and condemning his killing.
