NEW YORK - A US judge on Friday dismissed all criminal charges against Osama bin Laden following the al-Qaida leader's death, closing a 13-year court case against the mastermind of the September 11 attacks.

US District Court judge Lewis Kaplan, who presided over the bin Laden case in Manhattan federal court, issued an order called "nolle prosequi," which means do not prosecute in Latin, a typical legal move once a defendant is deceased.
