The al Qaeda terrorist network has confirmed the death of its leader, Osama bin Laden, U.S. monitoring group SITE Intelligence reported on Friday.

The al Qaeda terrorist network has confirmed the death of its leader, Osama bin Laden, U.S. monitoring group SITE Intelligence reported on Friday.

SITE Intelligence said al Qaeda confirmed bin Laden's death on a jihadist web site, warning that his "blood will not be wasted" and attacks on Western nations would continue.

Bin Laden was killed on May 2 in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad, north of the capital Islamabad, during a raid by U.S. Navy Seals.

The statement followed U.S. claims that al Qaeda was preparing a terrorist attack on the U.S. rail network to mark the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

White House spokesman, Jay Carney said on Wednesday that Washington would not release bin Laden's postmortem photos to avoid instigating propaganda and possible violence.
