Fars News reported:

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi questioned the authenticity and reliability of the recent announcement made by the US president about the death of the Al-Qaeda Leader, Osama bin Laden.

“Bin Laden’s death report is suspicious in essence since they claim that they have discharged his body in the sea,” Vahidi told reporters on the sidelines of a cabinet meeting here in Tehran on Wednesday.

“We should ask why they have not allowed an impartial party to observe this process,” he said.

Likewise, the Taliban still does not believe that Osama Bin Laden is dead.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said talk of Osama bin Laden’s death was “premature,” adding that the U.S. had not presented “convincing evidence,” the SITE Intelligence Group reported.

“As the Americans did not provide any acceptable evidence to back up their claim, and as the other aides close to Osama bin Laden have not confirmed or denied the death … therefore the Islamic Emirate consider any assertion premature,” said a statement emailed to media by Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid.
