According to a former bodyguard for Osama bin Laden, the al Qaeda leader wasn’t killed by Navy SEALs, but instead blew himself up during the raid on his compound in Abbotabad, Pakistan in May of 2011.

In an interview with United Arab Emirates newspaper Gulf News, Nabil Naim Abdel Fattah claimed that Bin Laden detonated an explosive vest that he was wearing.

Fattah noted that he was not in the compound during the raid and that he heard from bin Laden’s cousin.

He went on to say that that bin Laden wore the vest constantly for the last ten years while hiding from American forces after he launched the September 11th attacks in 2001.

“US forces did not kill Osama bin Laden. He detonated himself to avoid being captured after American forces raided his hiding place in the Pakistan in 2011,” said Fattah.

“The American president lied when he claimed that bin Laden was buried in the sea,” Fattah said. “Bin Laden’s body parts were cut into multiple pieces, which is similar to suicide attacks following the bombing, so as not to leave any clue to the U.S. forces to identify him.”
