Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan called Osama bin Laden a "shaheed" (martyr) while addressing the National Assembly. In his speech, Imran Khan said, "...we were very embarassed...When Americans came and killed Osama bin Laden at Abottabad..martyred him."

Lashing out at the US, the Prime Minister said that American forces entered Pakistan and killed Laden without "informing" Islamabad after which the world started abusing Pakistan, causing further embarrassment.

He added that 70,000 Pakistanis died due to the US-waged war on terror.

Osama bin Laden was killed in a military operation by US Navy Seals in 2011 at the garrison town Abbottabad. He was accused of many terror attacks worldwide.

Almost 3,000 people lost their lives in the 9/11 terror attack when five passenger planes were used as missiles to attack American cities.
