ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema has slammed American president Barack Obama over the killing of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. It was wrong for Obama, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize two years ago (2009), to have attempted to resolve his country’s problems with terrorism in this way, Malema told the National Press Club in Pretoria on Thursday. Bin Laden should rather have been captured and subjected to a trial to “rot in jail”, so that he could serve as an example to would-be terrorists, Malema said.
