    A Pakistani provincial minister announced Friday that two sons of Osama bin Laden were arrested in southwestern Afghanistan in a joint operation involving Pakistani and U.S. forces. U.S. counterterrorism officials disputed the claim.

    Seven other al-Qaida men were killed in the operation in which Saad and Hamza bin Laden were arrested in the Rabat region, Zehri said. He said the sons may have been injured in the operation.

    Saad, believed to be 23 years old and bin Laden's eldest son, is also on the American most-wanted list and has been said to be a rising star in the terror network.

    The al-Qaida leader is believed to have up to 23 sons by several wives.

    "They were arrested from Rabat area in Afghanistan," Zehri told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. Rabat is located in the extreme southwestern tip of Afghanistan where it borders Pakistan and Iran.

    Zehri is the home minister - in charge of security - in Pakistan's Baluchistan province.

    In Washington, U.S. counterterrorism officials strongly disputed the claim. They said they had no information that would suggest any of the sons had been detained.

    A U.S. official told an AP Radio reporter at the White House: "We, in fact, think it's wrong."

    glad to hear they're finally getting somewhere. i think the pakistani situation is more interesting/ important than anything else going on right now (they're supposedly tied up in NK nukes too). i've already seen conflicting reports on this one - don't know if the US is being cautious, or the pakis are jumping the gun.
