U.S. dismisses criminal charges against bin Laden

NEW YORK (AP) - A federal judge has approved a request by
prosecutors to officially dismiss all criminal charges against
Osama bin Laden.
The order was made public Friday, more than six weeks after bin
Laden was killed by the U.S. military in a raid on his hideout in
Pakistan.
The al-Qaida leader was first indicted in June 1998 in federal
court in Manhattan on charges related to the terrorist attacks on
the two U.S. embassies in Africa.
