Musharraf says Osama may be in Pak

Islamabad, May 2 (Reuters): Pakistanís President General Pervez Musharraf said yesterday there were indications Osama bin Laden was alive, and may be hiding in tribal territory on the Pakistan-Afghan border.

The latest speculation on the al Qaida leaderís fate came as Pakistani investigators were interrogating six members of an al Qaida cell and expected to glean information that would lead to the arrest of more members of the militant group. Musharraf told a Pakistani satellite channel ARY that it was possible bin Laden could be hiding on the Pakistani or Afghan side of the rugged border.
