Osama bin Laden found?Feb 18 2009

Applying techniques usually used to track endangered animal species, geography professor Thomas Gillespie thinks he has pinpointed the location of the world's most hunted animal, Osama bin Laden.

More specifically, he found a 90 percent chance that bin Laden is in Kurram province in Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas, most likely in the town of Parachinar which gave shelter to a larger number of Mujahedin during the 1980s. [...] Gillespie even identified three buildings in Parachinar that would make the most likely shelters for Bin Laden and his entourage.
