Interview on VOA Straight Talk Africa on the death of Osama bin Laden

Here's more information from the Straight Talk Africa website:

May 04, 2011, Death of Osama bin Laden: Implications for Africa

On Sunday evening, President Barack Obama announced that the United States conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the world’s most-wanted terrorist since nearly 3,000 people were killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. Mr. bin Laden's al-Qaida terrorist group is also blamed for the bombings of the American embassies in Nairobi, Kenya and in Tanzania's main city Dar es Salaam, which killed over 224 people. The al-Shabab militant group, which controls much of southern Somalia, has close links to al-Qaida and last year carried out a terror bombing in Uganda.
