Pakistan seeks independent bin Laden probe

ISLAMABAD -- Members of Pakistan's Parliament slammed the United States Saturday for the raid that killed al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden on their soil, but also demanded that an independent commission probe the incident instead of one led by the country's powerful armed forces.

The parliamentary resolution followed a rare, private session with top military officials that ran past midnight. Intelligence chief Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha indicated he'd resign if lawmakers demanded it, but no one did. It appeared lawmakers from the weak civilian government and the opposition essentially closed ranks behind the military. -- AP
