Bin Laden hunter held in Pakistan
ISLAMABAD – An American man armed with a pistol and a 40-inch sword was detained in northern Pakistan as he tried to cross the border into Afghanistan on a mission to avenge the 9-11 attacks and kill Osama bin Laden, police said yesterday.
Police said Gary Brooks Faulkner, a 51-year-old construction worker, was also carrying Christian literature and a small amount of hashish.
Faulkner’s sister, interviewed in Colorado, said her brother has polycystic kidney disease that has left him with only nine per cent kidney function and needing dialysis. (AP)
