Save the Children has strongly reacted to allegations that it supported the CIA in its efforts to find Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.

“A section of the press on Thursday cited allegations that Save the Children was involved with the CIA and Dr Shakeel Afridi in their effort to locate Osama bin Laden. We categorically deny these allegations,” it said in a statement on Friday.

There is absolutely no truth to these allegations and there is no concrete evidence to support them, the organisation said.

“We reiterate, Save the Children has never conducted a vaccination campaign in Abbottabad or in any other part of the country nor has provided any support to any other individual or organisation to carry out any vaccination campaign, the statement said.
