UNITED NATIONS - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Monday hailed Osama bin Laden's death as a key turning point in the world's struggle against terrorism.

The 15-nation UN Security Council also issued a statement welcoming the news "that Osama bin Laden will never again be able to perpetrate such acts of terrorism."

Ban told reporters "the death of Osama bin Laden, announced by President (Barack) Obama last night, is a watershed moment in our common global fight against terrorism."

"The crimes of al-Qaida touched most continents, bringing tragedy and loss of life to thousands of men, women and children," Ban said.

"This is a day to remember the victims and families of victims here in the United States and everywhere in the world," he added.
