Pakistan has no information on where Osama bin Laden could be hiding, a Cabinet minister said Monday, after a new audio tape purportedly from the al-Qaida chief was broadcast on an Arabic news network. Interior Minister Aftab Khan Sherpao refused to comment on the tape, aired Sunday by Al-Jazeera. But he said that Pakistan's efforts to fight terrorism were not focused on just trapping bin Laden, long suspected to be hiding in Pakistan's tribal regions bordering Afghanistan. "It is not to arrest one particular person but to curb terrorism in all its forms and manifestations," Sherpao told The Associated Press. "We have no information on his (bin Laden's) whereabouts," he said, adding that he would not speculate on bin Laden's presence at the border "unless we get credible information."
