Germany's foreign intelligence agency helped the CIA track down Osama bin Laden in Pakistan where U.S. special forces killed the Al-Qaeda leader, according to a German news report published Sunday.The information came from a BND informant within Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency and confirmed CIA suspicions, said the newspaper report which cited unnamed US intelligence sources.The German newspaper said that ultimately U.S. services tracked down bin Laden's exact location by following one of his couriers, as Washington has said.The BND has been accused of helping the US National Security Agency (NSA) spy not just on extremists and criminals but also on political and business targets, including the French government, European Commission and Airbus Group.
