As compiled at Al-jazeera on Monday, world leaders have announced their reactions after President Obama announced that Bin Laden was killed at Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Among the world leaders who have released their reactions are leaders from Pakistan, Afghanistan, Philippines and even former US president George W. Bush.

“We will not allow our soil to be used against any other country for terrorism and therefore I think it’s a great victory, it’s a success and I congratulate the success of this operation.” Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said.

“The killing of bin Laden is very ‘important news’. The Taliban must learn a lesson from this. The Taliban should refrain from fighting.” Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai said.

“The war against terrorism is in its sources, in its financial sources, its sanctuaries, in its training bases, not in Afghanistan.” President Karzai added.

“This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001.” Former US President George W. Bush said.

“The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.” Mr. Bush added, who was the president of US when the so-called 9/11 terror attack happened, in which Osama bin Laden was said to be responsible.

“The death of Osama bin Laden marks a signal defeat for the forces of extremism and terrorism.” Philippine President Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino III said.

“It represents the death of the efforts of one man to stoke the fires of sectarian hatred and to promote terrorism on a scale unprecedented in the history of mass murder.” President Aquino added.

Meanwhile, other world leaders who reacted on the death of the al-Qaeda founder include Britain Prime Minister David Cameron, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Italy Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.
