Hamas's reference to Osama bin Laden as a "holy warrior" is "outrageous," US State Department spokesman Mark Toner said on Tuesday, slamming the group for mourning the death of the al-Qaida leader.

Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh on Monday condemned the killing of bin Laden, whom he hailed as a Muslim mujahed [warrior] and Arab human being. He also told reporters in Gaza City that the killing of bin Laden came in the context of the United States’ policy of killing and repression.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague expressed similar sentiments, and condemned Hamas for its comments.
