Shamraiz Khan’s family in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad wants him back.
His son says he was taken away by Pakistani soldiers after the U.S. raid on the home of a neighbor they’ve now been told was Osama bin Laden.
[Mohammad Qasim, Son of Shamraiz Khan]:
“When the operation was over and our military came here they called him and took him away. After that there’s been no news of him, he still hasn’t returned."
Khan’s family say he went out to see what was happening as U.S. troops stormed bin Laden’s large house across the street.
He came back inside and took cover with his relatives as a gunfight erupted.
They say Pakistani forces came afterwards and took him away.
His mother is desperate to get him back.
[Shab Noor, Mother of Shamraiz Khan]:
“For God’s sake, return my son to me. I am very upset. I am ill and unable to get up. For God’s sake, tell the prime minister to get my son back. I beg of you."
Shamraiz Khan的母亲Shab Noor说：“看在上帝的份上，把儿子还给我。我很生气，我病了，不能起床。看在上帝的份上，告诉总理让我的儿子回来。我求求你.”
On Wednesday, life had the air of normality in the neighborhood where bin Laden apparently lived for up to six years undiscovered.
Pakistan is under growing pressure to explain how the world’s most wanted man got away with it for so long just 60 kilometers from Islamabad.
For God’s sake, return my son to me.
I am ill and unable to get up.
