Despite Pakistan's warnings that it would not tolerate another US raid, the US has made clear that it would go after the al Qaeda leadership anywhere in the world.

"We've made it clear to people around the world that if we locate someone who has been part of the al Qaeda leadership, then you get him or we will get him," US secretary of state Hillary Clinton said.

Asked if after the killing of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, she would recommend more unilateral US raids if it knew the whereabouts of other key Al Qaeda figures in Pakistan, she declined "to comment on any hypotheticals".

"But I think it should be sufficient to say that the United States has made it clear from the very moment we were attacked that we would go after those who had attacked us."
