Taliban Demand Evidence Before Possible Handover of Bin LadenOsama bin Laden would not be extradited before evidence against him is handed to the Afghan Supreme Court or to clerics of three Islamic countries, the leader of Afghanistan's ruling Taliban said Wednesday.
Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar, in a speech read out to a meeting of hundreds of clerics gathered in the presidential palace in the capital Kabul, said: "We want America to gather complete information and find the culprits," the Pakistan-based Afghan Islamic Press reported.
In response to U.S. threat to launch military action against Afghanistan, Omar said: "We appeal to the U.S. government to exercise complete patience" in demands for the handover of bin Laden, who Washington has said is the prime suspect in the terror attacks on the United States on September 11.
"We assure the whole world that neither Osama nor anyone else can use Afghan territory against anyone," he was quoted as saying.
