Former President George W Bush, who was in office at the time of the September 11 attacks and famously said he wanted Osama bin Laden dead or alive, said on Monday (Sunday, according to US time) the death of the al Qaeda leader was a "momentous achievement."

"The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done," Bush said in a statement.
