Pakistani Owner Of Bin Laden's Hideaway Aided Him

ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan (AP) - A doctor who sold the piece of land where Osama bin Laden's final hideout was built is identifying the buyer as Mohammad Arshad, a name that matched one of two Pakistani men often seen coming out of the al-Qaida chief's compound.

Property records obtained by The Associated Press show Arshad bought adjoining plots in four stages between 2004 and 2005 in Abbottabad, the town where bin Laden hid for up to six years just a short drive from the Pakistani capital Islamabad.

A doctor says he sold a plot of land to Arshad in 2005. He said the buyer was a "modest, humble type of man" who claimed to be purchasing it for his uncle.
