U.S. lawmaker has "questions" for Pakistani security

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A top U.S. lawmaker said on Monday that Pakistani security services have questions they need to answer following the killing of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in an affluent area of Pakistan.

"I think the Pakistani Army and intelligence have a lot of questions to answer given the location, the length of time and the apparent fact that this facility was actually built for bin Laden and its closeness to the central location of the Pakistani army," Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin said at a news conference.
