Dzurinda: Bin Laden's death ushers in hope of end to campaign of hatred

The demise of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden yields hope that his campaign of hatred aimed at inciting intolerance and confrontation between nations and civilisations can be halted, Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda said, as quoted by TASR newswire.

The demise of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden yields hope that his campaign of hatred aimed at inciting intolerance and confrontation between nations and civilisations can be halted, Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda said, as quoted by TASR newswire.

According to Dzurinda, bin Laden was behind the majority of the most malicious terrorist attacks of recent times, including the September 11 attacks.

"I believe that the information that we received in the small hours of today [Monday] brings not only the feeling that justice has been done, justice for the families of thousands of victims, but also hope that such atrocities won't happen again," said the minister.

Dzurinda declined to comment on whether or not Slovakia is planning to beef up the protection of some of its authorities in response to the announcement of bin Laden's death, TASR wrote.
