No clues on Bin Laden for 'years'





THE US has lacked reliable information on al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden's whereabouts for years, US Defence Secretary Robert Gates says.

The revelation from Mr Gates, speaking in an interview with the ABC News This Week program to be aired overnight, comes days after US President Barack Obama announced he would send 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan.

In excerpts of the interview released ahead of the broadcast, Mr Gates also could not confirm reports about a detainee in Pakistan who claimed he had information on where Bin Laden was earlier this year.
