At Prime Minister Salam Fayyad’s press conference Monday, he was asked to comment on the killing of Osama bin Laden. This is his response:
“I don’t know exactly when this happened, whether it was last night or early morning hours – I guess depending on where you are in the world, which time zone.
I most definitely view this as a major landmark event, marking the end of the life of a person who clearly was involved with outrageous acts of terror and destruction. It is certainly our hope that this will mark the beginning of an end of a very dark era.”
