TEHRAN (ISNA) - Iranian Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi said Bin Laden died some time ago due to sickness.

"Why do the US military and security services refused to show Bin Laden's body and dropped it to the sea if they had really arrested and killed him," he said on the sidelines of cabinet meeting on Sunday evening when he was asked about the US claim on killing of the al-Qaeda Leader Osama Bin Laden.

"We have exact information that Bin Laden died some time ago and is no more alive and we have documents to prove the issue," the Iranian minister added.

"We showed Rigi in TV when we captured him and we aired an interview with him," he added.

"We believe that what the US is seeking for by dictated media programs is to overshadow the recent awakening in the region through release of such reports."
