NEW YOR: The United Nations Security Council has welcomed the news of the death of Osama bin Laden, expressing satisfaction that the al-Qaida leader will never again be able to commit acts of terror.
The U.N.'s most powerful body held a special session late on Monday to issue a statement appealing to all countries to work together in the fight against extremist militants.
The council recalled "the heinous terrorist attacks" committed by the al-Qaida network throughout the world, and said no cause could justify the murder of innocent people.
It reaffirmed that "terrorism" must not be associated with any religion, nationality, civilisation or group, and called for global cooperation to address the conditions that breed "terrorism". AGENICES
