|| 1 мая 2011 года основатель и духовный лидер террористической организации, лично планировавший и вдохновлявший теракты, был ликвидирован в результате внесудебной спецоперации с минимальными побочными потерями. Операция вызвала оживленную международную реакцию:
|Kofi Annan, UN secretary general: "I do condemn the targeted assassination of Ahmed Yassin and the others who died with him. Such actions are not only contrary to international law but they do not help the search for a peaceful solution."
||Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon hailed Osama bin Laden's death as a key turning point in the world's struggle against terrorism.
|The EU's foreign policy chief, Mr Javier Solana, described the assassination as "very, very bad news for the peace process".
"The EU recognises Israel's right to protect its citizens against terrorist attacks. Israel is entitled to do this under international law. Israel is not, however, entitled to carry out extra-judicial killings.
|Тhe President of the European Parliament, Jerzy Buzek said, "We have woken up in a more secure world."
EU High Representative Catherine Ashton said: "I would like to congratulate the US, pay tribute to its determination and efficiency in reducing the threat posed by terrorists and underline the close cooperation between the EU and US in the fight against terrorism."
|Jack Straw, then British Foreign Secretary, said: "But [Israel] is not entitled to go in for this kind of unlawful killing and we condemn it. It is unacceptable, it is unjustified and it
is very unlikely to achieve its objectives."
|Prime Minister David Cameron said that bin Laden's death would "bring great relief" around the world.
|French President Jacques Chirac on Monday "unreservedly condemned" Israel's assassination of Hamas spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, saying it violated international law.
Spokesman for French Foreign Ministry Herve Ladsous also said in Paris that Israel's assassination was illegal in international law. "France condemns the action taken against Sheikh Yassin, just as it has always condemned the principle of any extra-judicial execution as contrary to international law," he said.
|French Foreign Minister Alain Juppé said on state radio that bin Laden's death is a "victory for all democracies fighting the abominable scourge of terrorism". He went on to say,
"France, the United States and European states work closely together to fight terrorism, so I'm overjoyed at the news."
|Jan Petersen, Foreign Minister of Norway: "This act will contribute to increased tensions in the area and will make it more difficult to implement the road-map for peace and a possible Israeli withdrawal from Gaza."
||Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre called the death of bin Laden "a break-through in the fight against terror"
|"The Holy See unites with the international community in deploring this act of violence that cannot be justified in any state of law. Lasting peace cannot come from a show of force."
||Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi said that while Christians "do not rejoice" over a death, bin Laden's death serves to remind them of "each person's responsibility before God and men", expressing hope that bin Laden's death "would not be an occasion for more hate, but for peace". The Vatican went on to say that Osama bin Laden must answer to God for having killed an innumerable number of people and exploiting religion.
|Chief Cabinet Secretary Yasuo Fukuda told a regular news conference that Israel's actions were "thoughtless and reckless, and cannot be justified." "We are strongly concerned that the assassination of Mr. Yassin will lead to a continuing chain of hate and violence, greatly affecting the peace process in the Middle East," he said. "We condemn this act on the part of Israel."
||Japan's Foreign Minister Takeaki Matsumoto said today that the country welcomed the death of Osama bin Laden as "significant progress of counter-terrorism measures". "I pay respect to the US officials concerned," Matsumoto said in Paris, according to a Japanese foreign ministry statement.
|The Brazilian government on Monday condemned the murder of Sheik Ahmed Yassin, spiritual leader of the anti-Israeli group Hamas, regretted the "escalation" of violence between Israelis and Palestinians. "Brazil deplores the actions and actions opposing Israelis and Palestinians," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement after Yassin was killed.
||The death of Al Qaeda's leader Osama bin Laden is 'important and positive to relax tensions at a time in which the Arab world is calling for more freedom of expression,' Brazilian Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota said Monday.
|Malaysia has strongly condemned the assassination of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin: "the extra judicial killing of political leaders was against international law." Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar meanwhile said the action was a manifestation of terrorism.
||Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein says he hopes that the death of bin Laden would help bring universal peace and harmony.
|Russia on Friday expressed its regret over the US veto of a UN Security Council resolution denouncing Israel's assassination of Hamas spiritual leader, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin.
||"Russia was among the first countries to face the dangers inherent in global terrorism, and unfortunately knows what al Qaeda is not from hearsay," the Kremlin said. "Retribution will inevitably reach all terrorists."
