How Laden got away from Tora Bora hideout

The al-Qaeda supremo’s successful flight from Tora Bora mountains in Jalalabad in eastern Afghanistan has long been seen as one of the key early lapses of the international military effort in Afghanistan and though various theories have floated no firm account how Bin laden evaded the US forces has yet emerged. The new details about the escape have emerged from interrogation reports of the Guantanamo Bay detainees and one account claims that local Pakistani militant commander Maulvi Noor Mohammad aided Bin Laden’s escape.

The newspaper said, Mohammad provided 40-50 fighters to escort a trapped Bin Laden and his deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri to safety following intervention of a senior al-Qaeda commander Abu Torab in mid-December 2001.
