CAIRO (AP) -- Al-Qaida has issued its first confirmation of Osama bin Laden's death in an Internet statement posted on militant websites.
Friday's statement by the terror network says bin Laden's blood "will not be wasted" and it will continue attacking Americans and their allies.
Bin Laden was killed Monday by US commandos during a raid on his hideout in Pakistan.
