WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama said on Sunday that al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden likely had support within Pakistan, but the nature of that support is not yet known.
"We think that there had to be some sort of support network for bin Laden inside of Pakistan. But we don't know who or what that support network was," he said in excerpts of an interview with CBS to air Sunday evening.
He said the Pakistani government had indicated that it had "a profound interest in finding out what kinds of support networks bin Laden might have had."
