Pakistan, in apparent reference to old rival India, said on Thursday any country that tried to raid its territory in the way US forces did to kill Osama bin Laden would face consequences from its military. The raid by US special forces that killed Washington's most wanted man in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad on May 2 has exposed the Pakistani military to rare criticism at home. The US ally is also facing growing international pressure to explain how was it possible for bin Laden to live close by the military's main academy without the knowledge of security agencies. Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir dismissed any suggestion the Pakistani military or its main spy agency (ISI) had been involved with al Qaeda and issued a blunt warning against any further intrusions.
