Pakistan leaders under pressure to quit

Pakistan's elected leaders have come under mounting pressure to resign in the wake of a US commando operation that killed Osama bin Laden.

The fact that bin Laden was living in a garrison city less than a mile from a top military academy has fanned US suspicions that elements of Pakistan's intelligence services may have known his whereabouts and been protecting him.

The news comes after one of Osama Bin Laden's widows has reportedly told investigators he was living in the country for seven and a half years.
